Okay, not quite but almost! One of my Christmas knitting projects is a scarf for a nephew. He requested pale blue and white, neither of which were colors in my acrylic stash, so Saturday morning I headed to the closest big-box craft store. Just my luck: they were having a buy-two, get one free sale! I got the yarn I need for my other Christmas project, and for this scarf I chose more of the Lion Brand Jeans yarn, this time in the faded blue color, plus some Vanna White white. (Except when I started knitting with it, the Vanna White worsted was thicker and not as soft, so I pulled out a partial skein of KnitPicks Brava worsted in white instead.) I cast on that afternoon and it’s been my only project this weekend. He’s only five so it doesn’t need to be a big scarf, which means that the 47″ I have tonight is very close to being long enough. If he’s 45″ tall, and I make the scarf 60″, that’s plenty long enough, right?
But that’s not all I got at the store. I kind of went past this jumbo yarn on my way out and…well, buy 2 get 1 free, you know?? It’s a good deal. So this went into my cart too.
Pretty sure it’ll be a couple of cowls, but not anytime soon. I have more Christmas knitting to do!
Oooh I cant wait to see what you do with the jumbo yarn. Its so shiny and metallic! I love it! And the scarf looks great too.
Awesome! I’ve been knitting up bulky weight skeins into hats for Christmas gifts, so that’s where my mind first went when I saw your new chunky yarn. The scarf looks great!
I love it!
Hope he does too!
