Will add a bit more red pepper flakes for more zip next time :)

World's Coolest Scarf...that's the name of the pattern...not my words :)


Okay I finished it and it is by FAR the strangest thing I've ever knit.  It is called the World's Coolest Scarf and it is a free pattern on    I turned it into a cowl instead.  Fun to make. Funky and weird and I'll probably have to make a couple of more out of the odd ball novelty yarns that I have.

Only fiber people will understand this.....

When most women buy a purse, they look for matching shoes.....not me....I look for yarn to make the scarf or shawl to match the purse and eventually I may get to the shoes....but being totally put together when you leave the house is over-rated :)

Sneak Peek

Every now and then I see a pattern and just have to drop whatever I'm working on to make THAT one!  This is COMPLETELY different for me and I just might have to make a couple of them.  

That happened yesterday.  I went digging through my yarn stash and came up with what I thought was the perfect yarns for the project.  The pattern called for bulky weight yarn which I didn't have but I had two mid weight yarns that worked well together.  One is a Aran weight "Studio Donegal" soft Donegal 100% merino and the other is a "who the heck knows what".....a funky mixed novelty yarn with ribbons and fuzzies and something that looks like dryer lint.  Yep had to have it. Can't find the label that came with it though .... sorry. 

Okay so here's what I've gotten done so far......finished project coming soon. 

Happy summer knitting.
