Hubby and I have been re-watching Lost. We got to the episode, "Whatever the Case May Be" where Shannon tells Sayid about the song lyrics Rousseau had written over and over. The song was called, "La mer". I really liked the way Shannon sung it and decided to research the song. It was originally written by and performed by Charles Trenet. Beautiful song. After a week or so of listening to it on YouTube, I decided to buy it from iTunes.
I had this scarf listed in my Ravelry queue but my queue is 3 pages long!!!! Ravelry user, knita, suggested a CAL (crochet-along) for this pattern and alce, Moderator at the forum, started the crochet-along.
Yay. I picked up 2 skeins of Patons Grace in Tangelo. It's working up nicely. I'm using a J afghan hook. The pattern calls for Fiesta La Luz Multi, a sport weight yarn made of 100% mulberry silk. But, at $30 a skein (I'd need 2), I had a difficult time justifying the expense to myself on a scarf that I probably cannot pull off wearing for myself. So, the Patons Grace, priced at a more modest $4.00 a skein, will be used.
Depending on how this works up, I may head over to an LYS that is not too far away, relatively speaking, and see what sport weight silk they have and the prices. Although, I vowed never to return to that store again since they refused to acknowledge my existence when I walked in. They must have smelled crochet. *shudder* Well, we'll see...
