All this keeping the Schmoo company has certainly allowed me to spend a little more time knitting than I usually get to. Even if he’s taken over the entire couch and I’ve had to move my Poang Chair into the living room just to be able to sit down…..
I love this scarf. I love this yarn. I love this pattern. Need I say more?
When I said I was going to use every last drop of this yarn – you didn’t think I was kidding, did you? Pin is Copper with Amazonite and Swarovski.
Pattern: Gust by Anne Hanson
Yarn: Jade Sapphire Mongolian Cashmere 2 ply – 1 skein
Needles: US 4’s
And of course, while fixing my ottoman today – that holds some more of my stash – I came upon these three skeins of Lorna’s Laces Lion & Lamb in River. I had a brilliant thought
I thought – they might just look really nice as Hypoteneuse. I hope I’m right – I’ve got just a little over 600 yards. Anne’s patterns are so full of information, that I thought if I cast on for the scarf but added another repeat (15 stitches) and taking into account this is a heavier yarn then called for in the pattern – well, my mad math skillz aside, I might just have a nice size Scawl. yep. That’s what I’m gonna say it is going to be. A Scawl. If feels wonderful knitting this up. And Twinings is still here – a repeat a day or so. I’m really into the wrap around me type of knits lately.
