Am I Crazy???
Well, maybe! If I wasn't already, I'm sure to be by the time I finish this.
I went to open knitting night at Ewe-Nique Knits in Goshen, Indiana last evening and decided I needed this. I've been wanting to try a moebius scarf. I remember showing my Cub Scouts how a moebius loop works many years ago, and it fascinated me as much then as it does now.
I can't remember what I was looking for in the pattern binders when I was distracted by the Fiber Trends Moebius Shawl pattern. I'd already picked up the ball of Trekking yarn. Next thing I knew I was looking for a needle. They didn't have a 40" size 7 in stock, so I took a chance that the 32" size will work.
I sat down at the table and began casting on...387 stitches later, I read the next step. I needed another needle! I had one at home, so decided to work on my socks-in-progress, and take the next step in the comfort of my own living room.
Yep, three hundred eighty-seven stitches. In fingering-weight yarn. Following a lace pattern. Fit me for the white coat now!

Good luck with the scarf!

I missed Open Knit at Ewe-Nique Knits the other night. Hope there were a lot of people there!

Just three of us, Madalyn, and two were owners! I offered to go home so they could close up, but they said they had to stay open anyway, just in case anyone else showed up, so I stayed for awhile.

Oh No! YOU don't GET a white coat, it's the white coats who GIVE you a canvas coat with extra-long arms! hehe! Let us know how the mobius turns out!
