I made this little scarf lickety-split last weekend. It's left over fingering weight cashmere in Nutmeg that I got from Colourmart Cashmere. Some people haven't like their yarn, but I have to say that it softens and fluffs up beautifully when washed. I mean, I crocheted this on a USK hook. The bloom is incredible. People who use cashmere frequently also claim that you can put it in the washer (maybe dryer, too)!
If you are interested, the formula for this scarf goes like this: Chain 130, SC 8 rows or caston with the SC foundation and SC 7 rows. The border is made by chaining 5 stitches and SC into second stitch all the way around the edge of scarf. Weave in ends. Tada!
If you use a yarn that will not bloom like this, it will look much lacier.
Warning: Don't read the following if my personal entries have been TMI lately for you.
Soap opera time: Faux-SO is coming back from his trip sooner because he wants to help me get everything settled. When I first found out about everything I freaked out and asked him to do this, but he thought it was a stupid idea. Now he thinks he should because he feels so bad. He's a rogue and he knows it.
It's troublesome because it's been difficult contacting people about rentals with the holiday weekend and all. The perfect scenario would be me finding a place and moving out the day he comes back. Otherwise, it will be really uncomfortable staying in the same house as he and if he is staying with his real-girlfriend and I have to be in contact with him I might spontaneously combust. Aye, yaye, yaye! I'm over him but that's too much too soon.
