squeeze me

why is our lovely friend helena smiling? because she’s wearing a cozy, luscious infinity scarf that’s a cinch to knit—any beginner can do it, but it’s fun, mindless knitting for experienced knitters too (hey, we all need a break once in a while, right?).

wind it up snug around your neck or let it go to show off its beautiful drape. the easy to work stitch pattern has a rippling texture that’s knit right in, so the scarf naturally falls into lovely folds.

and it’s reversible—who doesn’t love that?

it’s as easy to wear as it is to knit.

shown above, the medium size infinity scarf in spirit trail holda, a smooshy, 12-ply lambswool/cashmere/angora blend in colorway sorbet. it looks like jen is currently out of this color, but she’s got many other great colors and i know she’ll have more holda coming in soon.

shown below, the small size cowl in shalimar yarns haven, a yummy merino/silk worsted weight yarn in colorway silver sage. yummiliscious.

thanks to jen at spirit trail fiberworks, i get to knit with holda frequently—i think it’s become my personal crack. and kristi at shalimar yarns also does a good job of keeping me supplied with delicious yarns that i can’t resist. i so appreciate the generosity of our yarn sponsors; they make my designs look great!

many, many thanks to helen and hattie for test knitting this pattern—where would we be without their enthusiasm? helen knit hers in a special gift skein of holda, shown above in colorway purple haze. i don’t know if helen looks happy enough to be wearing it; what do you think?

and lastly (but not least), a big round of applause for helena, who never hesitates to offer some time for modeling and helping in myriad ways; she’s a delightful friend, thank you helena!

please have a wonderfully merry weekend—full of the fun part of holiday preparations; see you all back here on monday, with another last minute knitting treat.

    I can vouch that I am very happy to be wearing the cowl, it is such a fun knit. I am planning on using some handspun on another one, or I might just wait for the new cowl pattern for that!
