There Was Merrily!

Following Beth’s lead, I feel the need to share with you some rather amusing spam this Monday!

I’m not sure this correspondent was actually intending to join in on my birthday poetry and quotation contest. (Don’t forget, if you haven’t entered; deadline is noon tomorrow, Tuesday November 27!) And I don’t know that he (or she, I suppose) is interested in yarn. But some of these are worth passing on.

“I is pleasantly amazed! Thank!!!”

“This simply prodigy!”

“Like! Thank you!”

“The Regard! The Excellent forum! Thank you!”

And my most favorite of all:

“There was merrily!”

So in a merry spirit, let me show you my most recently cast-on project.


This is slightly washed out from the flash (darn northern latitudes and our short days this time of year!) (and darn the need to work for a living!), but this is a Ravelry scarf! The marvelous and versatile Multidirectional Scarf, being knit using 32 stitches in (again) Twisted Fiber Arts yarn. This is “Duchess”, Meg’s sport/DK weight yarn, in — yes — the Ravelry colorway.


The artist donates a portion of the proceeds from each yarn sale to support Ravelry.

I am loving this yarn. It is so wonderful to work with, soft, non-splitty, yet sturdy and resilient. Mmm. I don’t know whom this scarf is for yet, but it’s sucking me in to knit and knit, just to see the colors deepen and lighten and blend and shift.

Now There Is Merrily!
