|You think the cover is awesome, just wait...|
What has caused this challenge - Scarves In The Round, by Heather Walpole, is to blame because it is full of too many fabulous patterns and I can figure out where I want to start! At first I thought I would make something light because living on the surface of sun, I don't get a lot of use out of heavier items. But have you seen the heavier items - oh my bob, they're delicious! The cables, the colors, the snuggle factor. I died!!
I tried to pull myself together and resign myself to something practical that I could wear more often than stare at it longingly but that honestly was no help at all. The lace, the picots, the drape. How is a knitter supposed to be able to choose where to start when they all beg to be on my needles?!?
|Everything is grouped into fabulous categories - From Beautiful Basics to Creative Colorwork, it's all here.|
So I did what anyone in my position would do - I closed my eyes and randomly opened the book... this is where I fell and this is what I will make. Now, while I go and find the perfect yarn from my stash, take a look at this wonderful book...
|I just adore the picot cast on and cast off of this piece. It's such a beautifully light and airy cowl that everyone should own.|
|This scarf makes me long for the holidays and the best part is, it's in the round so all the floats are safely tucked inside!|
|I'd wear this on more than just Wednesday, that's for sure! Can't you imagine a rainbow variegated against the black.. lovely!|
|Don't know how to do something? Don't worry! There are gorgeous photo tutorials in the back to explain everything for you.|
|Can you understand now how I was paralyzed... you will be too, I swear. Best cure is to simply make them all!|
