Color Tipped Scarf

As promised, I finished something from my list of lingering WIPs and have a new FO to show off! This is Purl Soho’s Color Tipped ScarfIMG_5191IMG_5187IMG_5168I started this in November of last year, so it took about three months to make…because of that big boring stretch of gray! Overall it’s very simple and quick to make. I used Berroco Maya, a worsted weight cotton/alpaca blend. It used 2 skeins of gray, and about half a skein each of the teal and purple. I’d love to do another one in some softer, thicker, squishier yarn, maybe some Baby Alpaca Chunky. As it is, the cotton makes this a great crisp, lightweight spring or fall scarf.

Once this was done, I turned to my next WIP: my Hitchhiker! It felt so nice to get that back out, even if it is small needles for me (size 3). I’m still loving the colors and the dense fabric it’s creating. I’ve still got a ways to go, but if I focus on it, I should be wearing it within a week. IMG_5175But I have a distraction from my Hitchhiker. My mail carrier delivered a bit of yarn I ordered last week, a gorgeous super bulky skein of blue/purple/fuchsia from Vice Yarns that I’m itching to cast on: IMG_5173Isn’t that luscious?? Yum yum yum. 85% wool, 15% alpaca. A cowl for me, yes, it will be.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, we’re experiencing some unexpectedly warm weather, and I need to go outside and watch my puppies frolic. Happy knitting!

  1. I love the color tipped scarf and the Hitchhiker will be fantastic! Can’t wait to see it! What pattern are you thinking for the lovely from Vice? I’m super excited to know! I’ve got some Malabrigo Rasta without a plan 🙂

    • Thank you! I’m not sure about pattern. I’ve made a few Marian Cowls with Rasta and Cascade Magnum, and it’s a great pattern for those yarns. (I do LOVE Rasta, yum!). But I think I want something different this time…I’ll keep you posted!
