Throwing Stripes

Ok......so this is a project I first sawMyra knitting on Martha's Vineyard while there last year and I fell in love....so, I had to do it.  Alix of the Vineyard Knitworks shop designed it....simple and lovely.  At first I thought this amount of ribbing would kill me, however, it was very meditative and come to find out, a good way to practice my continental knitting.  The yarn is Cascade Highland Eco Duo, alpaca and merino...fuzzy, fluffy and so soft.  Here's to simplicity....thanks Alix.
