I love the title of the next scarf pattern, Imperial Mirrors scarf! It will be Barbara Walker’s “Mirror Cable”, with a couple of modifications and a bit of mock cable on the sides. The “Imperial” part comes from the colorway of the yarn. This afternoon I used Jacquie’s charting tool (again) to iron out the details. Since the Diamondback is nearing completion, I’ll probably get swatching pretty soon.
I did a quick block of the Seismic scarf and was still hesitant last night … but, on examining it this morning, I decided it will be fine. No ripping; carry on with aplomb! (Now there’s a word that doesn’t get used enough! Also: flapdoodle. Dick Cavett used it yesterday in a New York Times opinion piece … I can’t remember what he had to say, but I had a blast saying “flapdoodle” for the rest of the day!)

It was lovely — even the dogwalkers, joggers and bicyclists seemed calm and peaceful. Here are some quick snapshots:
