Camelspin From The Yarn Drawer and Banville From the Bookshelf

Pattern: Simple k1, *yo, k2tog (2nd row: knit)
Yarn: Camelspin by Handmaiden Fine Yarn
Color: Labrador?? Blackberry?  (the tag didn't include the name of the color)
Needles: 4 mm. circular

Louise, at LK Yarns in the Hydrostone Market, has a few of these scarves hanging in the shop. They are all done in simple patterns but the yarns are all luxurious, with lovely sheens, and more than a hint of decadence. This luscious Camelspin is 70% silk and 30% baby camel  -and before the protests begin, I am sure they didn't harm the baby camel when they harvested a few hairs here and there!

Reading: The Infinities by John Banville
You know you have a good book when you ration yourself to a chapter here and there for fear of finishing too soon!
