A Churchmouse and some Koigu...

I am such a copier sometimes.  Or maybe I should just say that I get inspired by other knitters enthusiasm and projects.  Yes, that sounds better!  Last week at Noble Knitters, there were 3 knitters who had started this Churchmouse Koigu Linen Stitch Scarf pattern.  I loved the look of it.  The stitch makes the scarf appear to be woven.  You choose 3 skeins of Koigu KPPPM in 3 different colorways. It magically looks awesome in many different color combinations.

I went to my local LYS, Cast-on-Cottage  this past Monday because I remembered seeing Churchmouse patterns in their shop.   They were sold out of them!  Arggghhhh.  Must be really popular.  So I left empty handed, came home and did a search on the internet and found the pattern for a $5.00 download.  Tuesday I returned to Cast on Cottage to purchase 3 skeins of Koigu.  Last night I cast on for my own linen stitch scarf.  I am very excited about this!

This makes 3 projects I have going on at one time.  Very unusual for me but I honestly couldn't wait to cast this scarf on.  I haven't been this excited about a project in a while...  Anyone else knit this?

After knitting on this linen stitch scarf for 7 weeks you will have at least an inch in width. Makes it much easier telling front from back at that point. I'm loving mine and continue to knit on it every chance I get.
