(Note: we made it to WA with all the household goods and are getting settled in. Blondie is supposed to be transported to us some time in the next week. The house is a mess, we haven’t been to the grocery store yet, and there are about a dozen things on my task list to take care of. The list is getting shorter though. I wrote up this post last week before we packed…)
This is my second Lace Ribbon Scarf. The yarn is just so perfectly suited to this pattern that, although I considered other patterns, this won out. The first one is here if your curious to see it.
Pattern: Lace Ribbon Scarf by Veronik Avery. Available free from Knitty.
Yarn: 1 skein of Fleece Artist Merino Sock in colorway Parrot
Needles: US #5 Addi Turbo circular
Notes: This is a great easy pattern, well suited to handpainted yarn. Easy to memorize.
The yarn, well, I’ve knit with it twice before and this third time was totally different. Previously I’ve found it to be soft and light while this third skein was ropey and dense (seriously, I went UP a needle size from the last time I knit this pattern with the same yarn). Like it’s SUPER superwash or something. It also had a dozen broken plies which was very annoying. If I didn’t LOVE the colorway (even more than other photos of this colorway I’ve seen on Ravelry) so much I would have considered sending it back.
