Mel (aka "ian" in the comments -- for some reason I still haven't quite worked out, when Melly leaves a comment, it "makes" her sign her husband's name, rather than her own) is a now a full-fledged member of the knitting community.
And she's a bandwagon-jumping knitter, to boot. She's been seduced by the Noro Striped Scarf. And she wants to knit one herself. Yesterday. And preferably the exact same one knitted by brooklyntweed himself (my imaginary boyfriend, as you'll remember from yesterday's post).
When I told her that might not be possible -- perhaps the LYS we're meeting at tomorrow won't have the specific colourways, perhaps those colourways aren't even around anymore -- Mel had a bit of a moment. But I think she's fine now.
