Kiss

OK...what a perfect way to start this post.  Ever wonder how an “X” came to represent a kiss? Starting in the Middle Ages, people who could not read used an X as a signature. They would kiss this mark as a sign of sincerity. Eventually, the X came to represent the kiss itself.

In the beginning it was just a hand, rising out of the basket of yarn....it called to me...it matched my beautiful wool gloves....it demanded to come home with me...it took its show on the road to Baltimore, New York, Martha's Vineyard, Cape Cod, Massachusetts, Vermont....and now it's been completed at home....

Well, it's here, the linen stitch scarf with crazy zball yarn is finished and I love it.  It looks woven ( ironic since I'm now weaving), the stripes are long and thin....perfect, it's soft and honestly doesn't even look handmade.  This stitch would be perfect for a men's scarf...simple and elegant...not girly.
