It's really interesting; it would make a cool summer coverup or market bag. I need to try it in cotton.

Learned how to make basic Dorset buttons tonight from Ginny.
I had thought to use large/bulky yarn:
But no. Smaller, non-textured yarn is the way to go.
I didn't get my wheel centered well (sigh).
There are two books that have some really cool patterns. The one on the left is only available through Amazon.uk, dear!
Will definitely be trying more of these!

Took a Virus Poncho class with Rhonda today. Here's her almost-finished one:
Here's the yarn for mine:
It's a sport weight bouclé that I though I could use an L hook on - nope. Had to go down to a G. Hadn't even finished one repeat by the time class ended, but I can already tell it's gonna be gorgeous!

I've finished all the woven squares for my scarf or cowl. Every square had at least 4 ends to weave in. I managed to weave in all the things today.
I have a skein of Shalimar Breathless in "Land! Katie Scarlett". I'll be edging all the squares with that (hello, G hook!) then stitching the squares together.
I have 22 squares, all told. I'm not sure if it's going to be an 11x2-square long scarf or a 7x3-square long cowl and a coaster.
I'm leaning towards the cowl, we'll see!

So I finished a third Emergency Hat... but since I did it with Aran/chunky on size 11 needles, it's really only going to be a cowl. Managed to match the color changes on the icord in the front, too!
Also? I won an epic game of yarn chicken.
