Going into their yarn shop for any level of knitter is like being a kid in a candy store. Irresistible! And I didn't! I bought all kinds of fantastic yarns, knitted some up into scarves, and purses - and then had to stop to make & create other things for my shop - so I put the yarn away. Now it is time!
I started right before Christmas and knitted a loden/olive/ochre mix scarf as a gift for one of my friends Jennifer.
The next scarf - right after Christmas - had a similar color mix for my daughter's friend Sophia.
Scarf number three - seen above - I'll add a better photo later - was a scarf for me - loaded with saturated color - which I love - to work with a j.jill hot pink print shirt I had, and to do double duty - to work with an acid green jacket my daughter gave me for my birthday. Yes - I have them both on here :) This is a pic of my daughter (rock star) Ginna and me at the SCAD Art Museum.
I love the smooth glossy tape yarn, blended with a soft, nubby boucle.
The next scarf sold before I took any photos of it. It had the same awesome tape 'yarn' that is in the scarf above - but had burgundy boucle blended into it.
The next scarf had a lime green fur like yarn blended with a blue/green/white twist, and a cotton/lycra light green yarn. This one is very soft.
Scarf number 7 is made from a blend of a lime/blue bulky boucle, a hunter green cotton/lycra, and a denim color fine boucle. This one has fabulous texture.
My first scarf for guys - a soft twist merino in teal and moss - blended with two shades of a variegated cotton. One half of the scarf is moss, the other teal. It is nice and bulky - and has a great hand.
Scarf # 9 - in shades of lilac - a mix of one tape yarn and 5 other thin novelty yarns - in process...
For all of these scarves except the man's scarf I used the same technique - which I love to use with awesome yarns. I knit a few rows and then knit a drop stitch - the drop stitch really showcases the unique yarns - which I love featuring.
So far so good - I'm gonna just keep on knittin'!
