It is Majestic

My knitting buddies sure like the color of this yarn. Gina, remember when we looked at the ball band for this yarn and it had a name of #589? Your remark was something like "Oooh, aaah, that name does it justice, yes, # 589, drool." Whatever you said had me rolling on the floor with laughter. I've just learned now, that according to Rowan's site, this lovely color #589 does have a name - Majestic.

I finally knit a Moebius I like, color name - Majestic!


Pattern: Cat Bordhi, Simple Moebius from A First Treasury Of Magical Knitting
Yarn: Rowan Kidsilk Haze, #589 Majestic, .75 skein
Needles: US 2, 26" circular
Start Date: 9/09/07
Finish Date: 10/24/07
Notes: MCO 360 sts, it is more narrow than I'd like; next time knit the whole skein.
It is the correct length for twisting and coming up over the ears - just as I intended!
I may add an edge to make it a bit wider.
Next time I'll knit, then purl so the scarf does not do the center switch from knit stitches to purl stitches. My knitting buddies think that may make the loose centerline less obvious.

Nice! How did you like knitting with the kidsilk haze? I have two balls in stash that I've been waiting to cast on with!
