Remember in my review of Stitches South I said I had used up a skein of yarn already? That wasn’t difficult since the yarns I bought were all super bulky weight! I have been lusting after this skein from Knit Collage for some time. I first saw it at Park Avenue Yarn in Houston but I wondered what I could do with it. So I put it back in favor of some locally spun thick and thin yarn. The ever lovely Tric from Tricky Knits was selling this similar (no two skeins are the same!) skein so I knew that it would finally be mine.
It’s a very short scarf since there are only 34 yards in each skein. I whipped out my crazy huge US 19 Lantern Moon straight needles and just got to work. I cast(ed?) on 7 stitches and worked stockinette until I was bored. Then I switched to reverse stockinette until I was bored. Lather, rinse and repeat until all yarn is used up. Bind off and there you go. I just loved seeing all the spangles and flowers and beads just knit up and into the resulting fabric. This is from their Rolling Stone line but I’m very tempted to also try Gypsy Garden next.
I am planning on picking up another skein soon and making a very skinny scarf for a friend. She sometimes reads my blog so I’m going to be a little mysterious right now. But this yarn is totally her, I just need to get it in pink. I feel like I’ve said too much.
