I’m a little late to the party, but in knitting does it really matter? I think I have mentioned before that one of my favorite knitting books is Last Minute Knitted Gifts. Well, like a lot of you out there, the Chevron Scarf attracted my attention with all that color shifting and the length and the lightness of the fabric, oh my god! Anyway, I finally decided to make this beautiful scarf and in choosing to make it now I may have it done by the first fall wind. We’ll see. . .
What colors and what type of yarn did I use? I’m sure you are wondering cause that is the best part of this particular pattern. Well, I checked out Fearless Fibers and picked these two:
This would be 100% superwash Merino (550 yards!! each) in Midnight Passion (purples) and Sublime (browns). So soft and so saturated with color. Lovely.
And finally a picture with a tip: when knitting with 2 balls of yarn, I put them both in a big ziploc bag, pull the yarn from each corner and zip closed the middle. No tangling and confusion. Plus it is portable and neat (about the only thing in my life that is).
