It is sunny and 85 degrees here in the Inland Empire. Perfect weather for photographing my beautiful new "Purl" scarf. I made it per the instructions in "last minute knitted gifts", using Manos del Uruguay (possibly the most delicious yarn on the planet) in a heavenly shade called "heliotrope". I mixed in two strands of GGH "soft kid" in deep purple and light blue. It's only a 1x1 rib pattern scarf but the color combination (my own creation with a bit of help from "lmkg") it is stunning (if I do say so myself) and it only took a few hours. Now, if it would only get cold enough to wear it!
