I recently fell in LOVE. With some very fine mohair yarn from Be Sweet and the scarf pattern that came with it. A fine scarf on the diagonal. Lovely in “Shakespeare Colors” – and I have a thing for him too so it’s kismet, right?
The yarn in question also comes with an impressive price tag. But it’s for a Christmas present. For my step mom. That doesn’t explain why I bought enough for TWO scarves.
Anyway, I decided to go try the scarf out on some less expensive yarn before diving into the gold standard. At Michael’s I found Lion Brand “Amazing” in Ruby. So pretty. It’s knitting up nicely . . .
This project is being used to work out the pattern in my head . . . and to work out my twisted stitches issues. There are twisted stitches galore in this scarf – particularly in the lower half. But it is beautiful to look at. I like to pause after every row or two to spread it out and admire. I think I’ll have enough yarn leftover to make up a matching hat. . . . .
