Late Thanksgiving shopping
On Friday evening I was kind of getting restless, but I did not want to go back into the crowds again, after I picked up Lucas from a playdate I went to my local yarn shop. aawwwhhh and ooohhh. again. I could spent hours there. With the intention to purchase some bright colors of Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino yarn. Well.. this is what I came home with Nothing baby-ish about it.. boy I love this yarn. I saw a finished scarf in the store hanging and I totally loved how it felt touching it.
Of course.. it was NORO again this time from Kogarashi line and it is my second project working with this amazing yarn. The pattern was handed by the store owner.. I it is very simple – cast on 141 stiches with a size 11 US round 32” needle, join and go in seed stich around. which gives you a nice pattern on both sides.. just looks best when wearing it. After about7-8 hours of knitting (Friday night I worked til 2:30 am) it looked kind of like this
Last night I finished the scarf and it looks like this. I draped all kinds of skeins around my neck and this is what I liked the best. I love the colors.. I had a couple of choices but I think these colors are going to look amazing with any kind of coat, jeans and even if you wear some settled lipstick.
This scarf is currently pending for one of my readers but if you like me to make one for you too, I would be happy to make one for you or as gift giving.
The costs of this scarf would be ($22.00 plus 6% tax = 23.32 per skein x 2 = $ 46.64 = costs for material plus $23.36 for the making = $70.00) about $ 3.00 per hour, please
