peachy keen

I am really into neons lately, and, most specifically, neon orange with a little pink. So when summer finally settled into the Midwest, I made sure to snatch up and start a project with this beautiful hank of Madelinetosh in colorway "Neon Peach".

Have you ever tackled a project the second time around and found it a lot easier? That's what's happening to me with the Lace Ribbon Scarf. Back when I printed out the pattern from Knitty in 2008, this scarf pattern seemed impossible. I just didn't get it. And I didn't read charts, so I couldn't approach it from a different angle. Now, I'm able to really understand how the pattern works, and have memorized the repeats easily enough to set it down and come back to it.

It's kind of making me wonder if Thayer might be easier now....!


  1. Oh, I get it! I made a long, beautiful two piece shawl for my first daughter-in-law and the lace was so hard I had to be alone in the room to not mess up. I now have three daughter-in-laws and the third shawl was almost easy - I had finally memorized the repeats. I used Madelinetosh Vintage, such gorgeous yarn! It is worth it to keep at it!

  2. coming out of lurk to say, I thought I was the only one in love with this vibrant neon peach pink yarn. I have it in worsted weight and am caking it today to do the Madeline Tosh Honey cowl pattern. Can't wait to see what your F.O. is like.


Say something!
