  • Just gorgeous!!! She is going to be sold out in minutes!!

  • Oooo.. that’s loverly! I might have a random skein of STR that might have to become that scarf.

  • It’s beautiful. I thought it was a hand woven scarf.

  • So glad that you got gas… whew… what a relief!
    And the scarf is absolutely lovely.

  • That scarf is so long that it looks like you photoshopped it. Wowie.

  • Wow – that photo is magical! Before my eyes, different pieces pop into and out of the foreground and background. Very cool special effects, Ann 🙂

  • I thought the picture was of some kind of sewn/knit piece. The scarf is cool, but it looked like a quilt of some kind or crazy short rows. Maybe look at the picture with relaxed eyes and you’ll see what I mean. Maybe it’s the sleep deprivation talking!

  • Hmm, sounds like a rolaids commercial there in the first couple sentences.

  • The scarf looks really pretty.

  • My Bookmobile Contest prize copy of MDK:OTL arrived on Thursday, but I haven’t had a chance to do more than free it from its shrink-wrapping. I picked it up from my apartment complex office as I was departing for Knitters’ Day Out, an annual day of classes and market in Enola/Summerdale, PA. I had much fun and ended up too tired out to peruse my new book! I picked up the Holy Grail of Rowan (the anniversary issue of the magazine) this weekend, too, so much knitterly reading/gazing will be had.

  • Yay for getting gas.
    That scarf is lovely. You gave me an idea of what to do with that skein of fingering weight handspun that I have marinating in my stash that just refuses to become socks.

  • Doesn’t Merle Hazard have something to say about the gas (or financial bail-out) situation?

  • Gorgeous colors. I just love moss stitch. Like someone else mentioned it looks woven.

  • That’s absolutely gorgeous, but 7 feet of moss stitch? 7 feet of any single stitch? I would be bonkers!

  • Oy. Did 6.5 feet of moss stitch scarf in Colinette Isis (in Kingfisher) once upon a time. Least favorite project EVER on the needles, but I wear that sucker 3x a week in the winter.

  • “Ooooooooo!!”, was my first reaction after my screen opened up to your g-r-e-a-t scarf. “I want to make one”, was my next thought.
    —And perhaps I will, once I finish my own two (!) “fallback” projects and my one “I’ve got “dial-up” but it’s OK because I’m knitting this scarf” project (not to mention the rest of my Moebius Class “homework” before we meet again on 10/19, and my other few REAL projects, and-Oh yes-Festivus is coming…).
    Ann, the scarf is lovely. Thank you for sharing it with us.
    LoveDiane

  • Can’t think about bags, right now. Must finish third dishtowel. Seed stitch is brilliant for car knitting. I’m going up to the yarn room ( you know, the room with all the yarn, and the bed. Which has yarn under it.) and looking for something hand dyed to cast on. I remember the gas lines in the 1970’s . We kids amused ourselves by watching the grown- ups faces.

  • I totally thought you meant the other kind of gas.

  • Ann, that movie clip is HILARIOUS. Thank you!

  • 82″ of seed stitch might just Do Me In. But it is beautiful.

  • Beautiful scarf – hilarious movie clip

  • Beautiful scarf – hilarious movie clip

  • That is a beautiful scarf, wear it well.

  • Your scarf is beautiful.That much seed stitch would put me in the mental hospital. I still remember a Christmas gift moss stitch scarf I knit while a broke college student in 1982. I have never knit anything in moss stitch again.
    Good luck with the gas situation. Scary. The film clip is very funny. I wonder why the “s” word was written out while the “f” word was not.
    And yes, the other commenter was correct. Merla Hazard’s latest is overdue.

  • Forgot to add – bought your latest book Friday. Brilliant! I will have to knit that Pea Coat.

  • Hilarious clip – but I’ve got news from Williamson County. We’re out of gas too. So, please don’t hate us. I sat in a long line on Friday getting gas for my car and then had to get in another long line to get two gallons in a gas can to take it from Franklin to Brentwood so my husband would have enough gas to drive home after work. I’m hoping this tank will last several weeks (HA!)

  • I’d be leaning toward, “You say toMAYto, I say toMAHto,” myself.

  • I keep my reusable bags in the car so I don’t have to remember to bring them when I go shopping. Just a suggestion…
