Best laid plans....Obi is still not finished. On Sunday I did a bit of steaming to prepare for picking up for the sleeves. For the fun of it, I tried it on. I've always known I wouldn't need all 7 inches of the sleeve it called for...I have short arms...but oh my, it comes to my wrists! So, I have knit short ribbed cuffs. Seaming will begin when we have a bit of sunlight. It's black you know.

So while Black Obi waits, I completed another Fiber Trends felted hat. This one calls for a single ply of worsted. I'm using Cascade 220 for the first time. I do like the way it feels. I'll felt this weekend.

And for fun, I've begun the Multidirectional Diagonal Scarf using Lorna's Lace sport weight "Rainbow". It's a great pattern, really fun. "Rainbow" wasn't the best colorway to use. Too many short length's of color. I'll keep going on it and maybe make the next one in blocks of different color...or try the LL "Smoke". Now that would be pretty I think.
