The LoveScarf Project/HeadBand and Gold

This weekend was the knitting of 3 more LoveScarf projects .  Got great Thick and Quick Wool from Michaels up at 99th and Columbus on sale for $3.50 and added luxurious yarn from Wales; Colinette Chenille is unfortunately discontinued. But the colors she uses to dye with are really quite lovely and liven up a "traditional" oatmeal scarf with some subtle colors....


Five of these were dropped off at with the Seidmans.  Here is the group:

In addition I designed a headband on Sunday... I was walking down the street and saw a lovely headband on  a Upper West Side shopper and decided  I could use some leftover yarn and make something lovely just like hers!

Gold .......
at $1400 per ounce..is gold expensive?  Gold can buy 1.13  S&P 500s today... in 1980, the last gold rush.. It could buy 5.7 shares of S&Ps.... The comparable price today for gold = $7000 

Have a great day
