About that Pagona. The post title was not carried out in the post. I gave it away. (I also went back into the post to fix that.)
It did not need to be a scarf I should keep. It was the PERFECT prezzie for one of my costume grads. Even when I was knitting it, I kept thinking the color would REALLY suit her. And, as I said in the newly edited post, she's a good match for the spiky drama of a capelet sized Pagona.
Now knitting another giftie scarf out of Happy, a yarn from Wendy, the UK yarn distributer/manufacturer.
The pattern is Frangiflutti, an interesting little assymmetrical kerchief.
Almost done, actually. End of summer knitting push....

Finished the scarf.
Enjoyed the knitting. Both pattern, Stephen West's Pogona, and yarn, Tosh Light Merino, were pleasant to handle.
Love the color - richer than this photo, but I just want to post today and move along.

August holds a long deliberate stretch of heat and rest. It wants quiet and a book and a cold glass that tinkles with ice and leaves condensed pools of liquid on the table.
August demands the attention of the last preparatory stretch before the big Monday of school.
August tells me to hustle with all the things I've not yet readied.
August tells me to slow down before the real hustle begins.
This August weekend I paused for a little linen fixation.
Feels like August. Needs a great brim, one that goes forever.
