I am madly in love with this color. It is a shame that the company gives numbers instead of names for the different colors so I decided to name it buttercup yellow, but gold is really what it is. I am sure you noticed that this is NOT the pattern that I was thinking about. I did about twenty to thirty rows of Bias (which I still love the look). But I think I wanted some left slanting decreases to balance the right slanting decreases. So after ripping out, I am doing a pattern of my own creation--I casted on 56 stitches, did six rows of garter stitch. The body of the scarf is three stitches on each end in garter stitch and the middle is *knit two together, yarn over, knit one, yarn over, slip slip knit* repeated. I still get lots of lacy looking yarn overs and more balance with the decreased stitches. I think I will try Bias some other time with a different yarn.
The flower which is Hummingbird Mix Nicotiana was a centerpiece at the band banquet on Tuesday night. Every senior parent was lucky to bring one home :) Every band parent brings a dish to share. It was a fun evening of socializing and listening to some of the kids perform.
Last night we went to the Academic Banquet that is hosted by the school board. There is a dinner buffet with dessert. This year I decided on Black Forest Cake and it was one of the best I have tasted! Maybe I should make it sometime..
