I've been happily knitting with two fun yarns (both of which I posted about here) that made up into a couple of great scarves! Actually, one is a shawl pattern, but it turned out so soft and lacy that I'll most likely be using it more like a scarf.
The Bamboo Bloom Handpaint yarn has soooo much fun texture! I cast on a lengthwise scarf that I knitted in straight garter stitch on size 10 needles. It was a quick project and made up into a fluffy, warm scarf! I love the way the yarn varies from lace weight to loosely spun, unplyed sections and the color combinations.
I used Sharyn Anhalt's Turbinado Shawl pattern with Northbound Knit's 50/50 merino/silk DK weight yarn in the Metallurgy colorway for this gorgeous, light as air scarf/shawl. It looks like spun metal, especially in the sunlight, but is so, so soft! I added 5 repeats of the eyelet pattern rows, which made it a little longer and wider. And makes beautifully curly ends!
Now I have several knitting projects to finish up and several patterns and skeins of yarn calling to me!
Happy Creating! Deborah
