New Pattern: Desert Waves Scarf & Shawl
US 6/ 4mm knitting needles
Scarf: 390 yards fingering weight self striping yarn
The photoshoot for this pattern was a rather funny experience. It was the middle of August and I was visiting my parents down in the hot hot desert near Palm Springs. I decided to take the photos on the golf course in front of my parents house, thinking that the palm trees and purple mountains would make a nice backdrop. Right after breakfast my mom and I went out there to take photos. It was only about 8:30, but it was already at least 100 degrees and there were biting fleas in the grass. I found it hard to have a serene look on my face while I was dripping with sweat and getting flea bites on my legs! Luckily we were done in about 15 minutes, and I very quickly ripped off my wool coat and took a dip in the swimming pool.
