Here's the pattern again.. http://www.alltangledup.com/movabletype/my_images/my_patterns/aimili_eng.pdf

What should be our start date.. I need a week to get my yarn wet set, and dried.. I'm planning on using a recent handspun (Laurel)..

So, I vote for starting Jan. 11...

Eeek, did I miss something somewhere. I just bookmarked this yesterday.

I'm in. I don't think I have any suitable yarn but not to worry, I'll soon fix that. Wink

I'm planning on using some almost fingering weight yarn, and smaller needles... I want a to use the yarn, but I also like a narrower scarf...

I'm looking forward to seeing all your scarves.

I'm going to bow out of this one - I think have plenty of projects already OTN, counting the fingerless mitt KAL as well. Embarassed

I don't know if I have the time. I have a few projects that I have already committed myself to doing. Very Happy Can't wait to see everyone else's scarves though.

I'm in and next week works for me. I have a gift card to LYS that is "burning a hole in my pocket" and anxious to be spent. Hopefully the weather cooperates.

I can't print the pattern out. We're out of ink. Mad

Or the gloves knit-a-long pattern either. Isn't it always the way. And I rarely ever print anything.

I've revised my yarn selection... I'm going with this...



It's a hand dyed silk/merino that I spun navajo.. I still have some more to spin, and will have to do that in order to get a decent sized scarf... But I have enough to make a start...

This is the roving...



It was a birthday present... Very Happy

Yvonne.. will hubby have to slog through the snow to get more ink? Or will you opt for knitting in front of your computer monitor? Wink

Next to no snow here just a bit icy on our access road.

We have a nice mild climate just here on the coast.

Trouble is finding the right ink at a reasonable price. You can get a new printer for the price of the ink. Sad

I can write out the scarf pattern. It's not very complicated Just 8 rows I think, and knitting in front of the computer if I need to. Rolling Eyes

Love the yarn you have chosen.

I've found some Tencel I had forgotten about. Don't know how it knits up but as I've got lots of it, a scarf will be a good way to find out.

It was a bargain basement buy.

that yarn is yummy GA looks like pink candy floss.

Yvonne I found my last lot of ink through google search, I got a good price. Unfortunately I can't remember the name of the supplier right now.
