triangles are a girl's best friend

how to make this chickadee happy (in four easy steps):
  1. find some gorgeous yarn that also happens to be super soft (malabrigo dos)
  2. knit an amazing triangle lace scarf (ishbel by ysolda teague)
  3. decide you don't like the color on you
  4. give it to your eternally grateful and extremely excited friend
and can you believe it? that's just what my ultra-talented, generous friend christy did! thank you, thank you, a million thank you's! this multifaceted gem of a kerchief has barely been anywhere else but around my neck since the gifting. it has already garnered numerous complements and deserves some time in the spotlight here as well. to see her other beautifully crafted handknits, check out her blog knitting pretty in dc.

Yay! So glad it's worked out so well. Like I said, better it spend its days around your neck than sittng in my closet.

Also love this flower pics!
