It's not very often that I knit something for myself - something that isn't a sweater, anyway.  Usually, I'm knitting things to give away or as samples for classes these days.  This Vacillate pattern, though, was something I saw and instantly wanted; and while I was trying to choose yarn, the Lava quarter from The Golden Skein arrived.

The red yarn in this skein is dyed by Travelknitter, the grey by Sparkleduck. Both are dyers I love, and both had a high silk content (Travelknitter's Tanami silk and baby camel, Sparkleduck's Pulsar silk and BFL).  This was done as a knitalong (KAL) in the designer's group on Ravelry, and the deadline for posting photos was October 31. As ever, I only just made it!

I think this one's going to get a lot of wear this winter.  The pattern is great - a simple chevron for most of the rows, with a bit of slip-stitching along the way - and it feels very Art Deco.

Lovely! How easily do you think it would convert to an infinity scarf - Kitchener the two ends together? So windy here that a straight scarf can blow right off!
