i also started working on a scarf in the new Black Pearl Cashmere DK yarn.
this stuff is SO soft, and really affordable for cashmere.   it has a superb halo.
looks great on US 6 needles or smaller.

hey!   did you hear about the Knitty Gritty marathon on the DIY network?   instead of watching the superbowl you can catch a marathon and knit-along, hosted LIVE.   they are trying to get everyone to knit 7″ x 9″ swatches to make into blankets for the needy.

also at the above link… did you know that the videos on that DIY website are awesome?!?!   there’s a really great one about making bobbles if you’ve never tried it before.

here’s my first 7×9 to mail in… i had some light gauge yarns lying around and combined them together, using seed stitch and some cables and US 6 needles, wah lah!
