OTN....

First, let me apologize for the photo - this is the cat's stool and I didn't realize you can see the spot where he has scratched the fabric on the stool - LOL!

This pattern is called "Drop City"... it is a paid pattern on Ravelry. The pattern is written a bit oddly, but if you keep the "potato chip" scarf in mind - you will get how to do it. And as I always say, if I can figure it out - anyone can - ha!

I wanted to get started on it after buying the pattern, so I used one of my Lorna's Laces yarns.  If I do this pattern again, I want to try a self striping yarn. The projects I saw done in that type of yarn for this project really stand out!  But I'm still liking mine too - don't get me wrong!

The book is a re-read for me.  I liked it quite a bit the first time around - hopefully the second time around will be just as good, if not better. She has a new book coming out today called "The Light of Paris".  I will be buying that one when I make my weekly B & N trip on Friday!

I love the scarf/shawl. I'll have to check out that pattern. It is really pretty in that yarn.
I almost never re-read books, unless they are Victorian novels. I really want to revisit Middlemarch, but it's too big to carry on summer travels.
