I would like to note that I check my email daily (linked in the sidebar of both blogs) and I am always more than happy to help anyone if ever he/she runs into a snag!
Also, just so everyone knows (I would be so sorry to hear if this happened again; I'm terribly sorry that you had trouble locating it ), there is a link to the ICord Cast On tutorial on the "A Touch of Whimsy" pattern page and in the sidebar of both blogs.
I am honored that you chose to knit one of my designs, thank you
Again, I'm terribly sorry that you had a problem finding the tutorial!
And, your resulting scarf is absolutely beautiful! You should be quite proud (I love the blooby..[or is it bloobie?!]!)
Hi'ya Rebecca! Thanks for your help in locating the tutorial. I see it now, plain a day! I don't think I was on that page. And, when I visited Mrs. Modesitt's website, I couldn't find directions/help with the 3 st slip stitch edge.

Well, I definitely WILL knit your scarf pattern again with a solid color yarn, and I will knit your scarf JUST LIKE YOURS and Slims. The I-cord cast on, along with Mrs. Modesitt's edging treatment...gives the scarf a sophisticated elegance. I think a solid color yarn best shows off the pattern.

Thanks again for being a 'hands on' designer! We appreciate your thoughfulness in responding to our needs!

BTW: My botanical "Touch of Whimsey II" is really coming along! I hope to have it done, and blocked, by Sunday. My DD and I are going to the State Fair together...a mother/daughter outing...and I would love to give it to her then! We'll see. If I can limit my "KH online time"....I will get this scarf done! I have three skeins of the yarn...one is all used up now (128 yds). I want to make this scarf 60" or more in length for use when it is COLD here is Washington State. I like how the TV Field Newscasters wrap their scarves around their neck by first folding it in half...wrap that around the neck with the fold under their neck...then they pull the loose ends through the folded edge. But, you need a LONG scarf to execute this kind of neck wrap! I will post of photo of my DD wearing it.

ArtLady, i'm never on "that page"!
what can i say about this scarf that i haven't said about all your other FOs and WsIP?

SPLENDIFEROUS!!!!

(i think that's a new one. )

that's how my mom likes to wear her scarves. i'm not sure why. i know she's told me before, but her explanation has lost itself somewhere in the deep, dark crevises of my mind.

Oh, what a wonderful surprise it will be for her when ya'll go to the state fair! I love, love your colorway with this scarf, it's gorgeous! I can't wait to see a picture of her wearing it, with your description of her, oh, it will be so lovely on her!
I'm afraid my "little one" and I don't do mother/daughter type things like that now since she's grown! Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy while you can, they grow up so quickly!

You are more than welcome, I get several emails a month from fellow knitters regarding my designs....what a joy!! I love, love, love to share my designs for free online...and, when i actually see that someone has chosen to knit this or that design, well, I get all happy, excited and extremely honored! All of which I am doubly so because you said you are knitting yet another! Just...wow...and thanks so much

That is beooooooootiful! I'd like the pattern link.
Also, what does the back of it look like? I like Silver's new Palindrome over the Irish Hiking Scarf since it looks nice on both sides. So is this one's reverse pretty also?

It is not exactly reversible like Silver's scarf. It is nice though. I will post a photo for ya tomorrow.
Here is the link to the free pattern. BTW, the designer is one of our KH members!

Her name is Rebecca, and her handle is Rebecca. Take a look at Slim's thread under Whatcha Knitting...Touch of Whimsy. Rebecca has posted some helpful tips for us on Slim's thread.

HERE is the link to her Whimsical Knitting Designs site. She is a most gracious and talented designer, sharing her designs freely! She has a great I-cord cast on tutorial on the right column. If you decide to knit the Touch of Whimsey scarf as she shows it, you might need to take a peek at the tutorial. I couldn't figure it out when I cast on...so I scrapped the I-cord cast on...and made the design adjustments. I like it in the green botanicals. However, I will use her pattern as set forth for a future Whimsey scarf in a solid color. I JUST LOVE Slim's light blue-grey Whimsey!

Even though Touch of Whimsey is not reversible, I like its soft graciousness over the sturdy appearance of the Irish Hiking Scarf.

I love my Whimsey scarf in the botanical greens! I am liking it more and more as I knit along. Good thing, too. I have 3-128 yd skeins to plow through. What ever length they give me will determine the finish line!

Oh My, GAWGEOUS, Dahlin', simply GAWGEOUS! Looking better with each row!!!
And, my goodness, thank you for saying such kind things, I'm all LOL. Seriously, you are too kind!
It really is a fun knit once you get in the groove IMHO, of course, lol! I will be so happy when the socks are off the needles, but...alas, I have socks to knit for my Honey Man before I complete the Whimsy socks!
Good morning to you all....have a grand day
