I'm a dip...

for the dipped infinity scarf that is...

I'm a dip

Here is my color plan. I needed a simple knit to compliment my Peasy Sweater - which is kind of a tedious, take forever kind of project. I have been loving all of these amazing inifnity scarves as ravelry - The Plucky Knitter even sold a few kits to try. Of course, I jumped the bandwagon seconds too late to get one of those, so I made my own. The MCN is crack-a-lackin. I have so much freaking sock yarn, I should be committed - so it seems like a project made in heaven, since you use 8 sock yarns. Once I looked at the whole cache - it was hard to pick which would make it into the scarf. Kind of like qualifications for the short track in the Olympics - I'd look at four, pick two...so on. I think it will be a quick knit - I'm this far in one evening...

dipped infinity

I also have to share this yummy recipe after finding it on flickr of all places. Adrian from HelloYarn has a gorgeous Dutch Baby pancake on her photo page - omg. I plotted all weekend to come home from work early today to make one for myself - you know, kind of a test run before I hand it off to the family. Jeez, wow. And I bet you have everything you need in the pantry - you can dress it up any way you like. amen.

mmm

You should really check out all of Adrian's gorgeous pictures if you haven't. She posts cool recipes and links too.

Impeccable taste in colors! I have enough Fiberphile in their MCN crack to knit one (and probably Plucky too). Let me tell you, that MCN base has me by the heartstrings! :)
