One of the many things I do is to knit. Not often, and not as much as I did when I lived in Canada, but I still do knit on occasion. While I was in Knit One Stitch Too a while back, I found this wonderful yarn. Lightweight, shimmery, soft in the skein, and I fell in love. Unfortunately, I have forgotten the name of the yarn…..I think I need to start a small notebook with yarn samples, and the brand names…but I digress.
So, I bought the yarn (and others too) and while I was browsing saw a scarf done with a “drop stitch” pattern. I came home, cast on what looked like a reasonable amount for a scarf and started knitting. Varying knit rows with drop stitch rows in a random pattern.
Last night I finished the scarf (which I have not yet blocked) and I just love it!
