Like many good knitters, I am not able to keep only one thing on the needles... ;-) and for some reason, scarf-like objects seem to have captured my fancy.
So even though I am primarily working on my Alpaca Cape, I did cast on the Palindrome Scarf almost as soon as I finished the Acadian Shawl.
I had started this pattern with my Donegal Wool a while back, but that yarn is too scratchy to use against the neck and I love the Yak-Merino I used for the Elevation Profile Scarf, Man Hat and Acadian Shawl.
Between the three colors I had 4 1/4 ounces left and since blocking adds a lot of length with this yarn, I think it will work out. Although, one of the yarn shops nearby carries the same brand... if I find I really need one more skein. I'm certain I could find one in a complimentary color... perhaps, red. ;-)
In the meantime, love the three colors together and I love the simplicity of this pattern.
So this project is doing two things for me... 1. using up left over yarn and 2. allowing me to practice purling correctly.
Happy Fiber Arts Friday!
