I’ve been chugging along, merrily, on this lovely chevron scarf in Lion Brand Mandala yarn. Pretty sure this is the Chimera colorway. I am not one to buy yarn at the grocery store, but these colors are just ridiculously amazing. I was hoping to have this scarf done to wear this winter, and it’s looking like there is no end to winter in sight. I can see my yarn ball withering away row by row. I haven’t knit anything but tiny sock yarn in so long, it’s so fun to watch such progress happen in a relatively short amount of time. Stay tuned here and my Facebook page for this pattern, written up in a little free printable.
My next project has presented itself and of course I immediately want to dump this chevron scarf and cast on with my new crush The Rill Scarf. I found it through a Craftsy link to their clearance sale. I can’t resist a great clearance sale!!! They had a discounted knit kit, but only black yarn left. I knew I wouldn’t like it in black so I bought just the pattern and knew I had some stash yarn I could use. I have the most perfect skein! It’s a luscious skein of Madelinetosh Prairie in a colorway called Dachshund. It’s mocha and purple… still one of my favorite color combos. This is a yarn that I would never have bought without a project in mind, but someone gave me birthday money while I was in a yarn shop, so I basically HAD TO buy it. It was fate. And now I have the perfect pattern for it!
So, excuse me, I’ll be knitting today and no one will eat or sleep until I’m done with the chevron scarf. Ok ok… I’ll feed the 3 year old. But everyone else here is tall enough to reach the snacks.
