Remember I mentioned a few posts ago that I was working on a fun, easy knitting project where I’m holding two yarns together? Here are the two yarns I am using: Rowan Kidsilk Haze in a light lavender, and Trendsetter Yarns Charm in a purple/lavender combo. (Actually, Charm is more like a fuzzy, bumpy string than a yarn, but I like it anyway!) Holding both yarns together as I go, I’ll probably use one ball of Haze and two of Charm to finish off a scarf that looks like this:
It’s funky and cute, a little sparkly, and kind of soft. It would be perfect to wear to, say, a cafe on Union Street in San Francisco. Best of all: it’s knit on size 11 needles (or you could even go up from there), making it pretty quick to complete. That is, if you’re not doing lots of quilting, parenting, and writing in between! Here’s how it looks on the needles:
The folks at Uncommon Threads gave me the idea to use these two fibres together. It wasn’t exactly a pattern, but more of a suggestion: just cast on around 18 – 20 stitches, and knit in garter stitch till you run out of yarn!
