I Still Love Lucie, I Guess

Koigu KPPPM is the same weight as the de Sauveterre merino/silk of Lucie fame and - it hardly seems possible - even softer. On a visit to the Bay Area last June, I picked up two skeins, took up my #3 wooden needles, and started a scarf in vine lace on the plane trip home. Right off the bat, my scarf looked very Missoni. Months later, it still looks very Missoni. And that I love a whole bunch.

I'm still loving Lucie and still chugging along at the thing. Back of Lucie - done! Front of Lucie - done! That leaves two sleeves and two weeks until I want to wear it to a Kathy Mattea concert. The dark in the photo looks like charcoal but is forest green.
