Maya came to LA to spend some time with me, Kevin, and our little Pon Pon this week. It was wonderful spending stress-free two days with my best friend. Since she’s originally from here, there was no need to take her out sightseeing or anything, so we ended up spending most of the time inside the apartment, talking, eating (a lot) and being absolutely lazy. Some may wonder why we wasted away the precious time doing nothing, but this is how we roll, and we won’t have it any other way!
The last time Maya and I hung out (not including the wedding) was back in March, when we spent a fun-filled week in NYC. While spending time in the Big Apple, she forgot to pack her scarf so she ended up wearing my green hand knit lace scarf. She liked it so much that I agreed to make her one! She picked out her favorite yarn at Purl SoHo and I promised her to have it ready by fall.
Well, I wasn’t able to finish it by the time she visited this week, but I’m making progress! I’m almost finished and I’m hoping to have it ready for her for her birthday at the end of the month. I’m thankful that Portland remains cold a little longer than Los Angeles, so she’ll get to enjoy this cozy scarf around her neck for a good few months!
- Pattern: Lacy Scarf from Debbie Bliss’ “The Knitter’s Year”
- Yarn: Cascade 220 Superwash Sport 820 Lemon (I love this yarn!)
- Modification: I doubled the width by casting on 76 stitches instead of 38 as the book indicated, and repeated the pattern.
I’m hoping to post the picture of Maya sporting this scarf very soon! 🙂
Update (November 19, 2012): YAY, I’m done! Check out the final product here!
I met her last weekend!… Can’t wait to wear her soon!…. Love it already! Thank you Hirono!
The scarf already loves you! I had such a wonderful time with you. I already miss you! Let’s do it again soon — I’m serious!
By the way, how were the macarons? 🙂
Wow, so pretty and feminine, and I love the colour!
Thank you so much! 🙂 I love the color too! I don’t usually think of yellow but I think I’m gong to start using it for other projects now!
