Seduce: to win over; attract

Yarn seduces me with her siren call. "Pick me! Pick me!" I am hopelessly enchanted by yarn and am delighted by the endless choices.

And for your viewing pleasure...

A couple of WIPs:

"Hearts A Plenty" by Monica Jines. I'm using Sleeping Dragon Yarns, Wooly Bamboo Hand Painted, Roses & Chocolate. I love the sheen of the yarn. And of course it is soft! I am using DPNs size 0. I thought I would never be using needles that small but I guess we all can "be asimmulated."

"Undulating Waves" by Laura Nelkin, using Schaefer Yarns - Heather, Gertrude Ederle. I did have to restart this one to understand how to get the beads to lay correctly. It is the second pattern I've knitted using beads. I love everything about this scarf; the yarn, the beads, the color but it is a challenge to work with that many beads!

My friend in MD and I are doing this scarf as a KAL. It is one way to keep in touch since I recently moved. Not only do we catch up on what is happening; we help each other when we have questions about the pattern. Now to find more time to knit!

Ooooooo Susan that beaded scarf is so beautiful!! I've really been itching to make a beaded scarf lately - just need to nail down a pattern. :)
