A case of the copycats...

Oh yes, I went and caught a case of the copycats in a bad way. It is a nasty virus. It strips you of all original thought and leaves you helpless to copy the uniqueness of others.

I first felt the copycats coming on when I saw Ashley's new scarf. And just like that, I was down for the count. Oh the colors! The purdy, rainbow-licious colors! How could I not be consumed? Little did I know, that Ashley was merely a carrier of the virus, and the origins of this epidemic could be pinpointed to Maritza of knotty bits. Genius, pure genius.

I e-mailed the fab people at Blue Moon Fiber Arts, and they were able to send my prescriptions immediately. In fact, JoAnn from Blue Moon had to ask what all the hullabaloo was about since she received several request for those two specific colorways. Sounds like the copycats are spreading...no knitter is safe.

WOOOOOOOOOOO! No one is safe from the virus! No one! It looks so awesome--and how funny that the Blue Moon peeps were like, "um, what is up with THAT?"

So pretty. I'm going to check my sock yarn stash and see what I can come up with as I do have about 3 skeins of STR. Did you have to make any modifications to the scarf pattern? And lastly what size sock yarn did you use of STR, lightweight, mediumweight, etc? Thanks in advance for the info. You've made me want to knit a scarf!

Umm, yeah, I believe I only knit things I've copied from other people. That scarf is awesome!

Wow, your scarf is coming along beautifully! I'm laughing over the people at Blue Moon asking what the hullabaloo was about. That's great!
