An in-between knit

This small scarf was an in-between project. While waiting for additional beads for my Snow Queen to arrive, my eyes fell on an old issue of Piecework Magazine, the July/August 2009 issue. I found this little gem, designed by Nancy Bush just so I wouldn't get out of practice knitting nupps. It used just 40 grams (less than 1-1/2 oz) of fingering weight yarn. The yarn came of a cone of Jaeger Spun Maine Line 2/8 weight yarn purchased from . The color is turquoise.

And look, the snow has melted and we actually had about 3 minutes of sunshine. But not to get too optimistic. The weather forecast calls for more snow, later in the week. Let's all bow to the wheather god/goddess and say "enough." Let Spring begin.

The beads have arrived. Now I can go back to my Snow Queen.

Knit on merrily!


  1. Lovely. I bet Jeri Riggs would love this one :-)

  2. Oh, it's gorgeous. I was thinking about knitting an estonian pattern from Nancy Bush - maybe a scarf is the best way to learn nupps before going wild with a shawl. Thanks for posting.

  3. Beautiful scarf, amazed it took so little yarn to make it.


  4. Love it -- what is he name of the pattern?

  5. It's beautiful! I'm going back in your posts and trying to figure out why they are not showing up in my "Google Reader"...sigh!
