I'm home... for a second

Hello all! I'm back from Bermuda and preparing for my trip to Cancun on Saturday! Yes, I am a total nut, thanks for asking. It was an error on my part when two trips came up I didn't realize just how close May was to June. Did you know the last week of one month bumps right into the first week of the next? Duh Tracy! Bermuda pictures to follow, but for now I wanted to thank you all for the complements on the scarf. As I mentioned I took a basic stitch pattern and just added an edge below is the pattern I used, hope you enjoy! Oh, and if you decide to make it please share a picture I would love to see the pattern knit up in different colors and/or yarns.

Dear Tracey - scarf recipient here! Thanks again, SO MUCH for all the hard work yo put into my scarf. I'm enjoying wearing it so much. I'm getting him indoors to photograph it today, as it's the weekend and he's home from work for a change. I can't wait to try on the baby birkenstocks on Bubs - she's gonna look sooooo cute!

And I've gotta get me some of those wires...
