New Camera and much more
Ok so I was go over the weekend down to south Florida and 80 degree temps. So what did I have to do but I had to find a Knitting shop. I visited Knitting with Nancy in Naples, FL and I had to buy something, as any good knitter cannot enter a yarn shop and not make a purchase. So I picked up a ball of Crystal Palace Ribbon yarn and a ball of Taki Stacy Charles Cottn and another yarn that I lost the lable for but it is a 50/50 cotton rayon blend. All of them are in pinks and oranges with little lavender mixed in for good measure. I ended up knitting a scarf out of it on the way home and I just love the way it turned out. So here is the pattern for this scarf. Needles: US #13 (9mm) Circular Yarn: Six different types in different gauges and textures. I used a wide ribbon, a cotton, a handspun, a feather, a rayon, and a narrow ribbon. With first yarn cast on 150 stitches then cut yarn leaving a 4 inch tail. Row 1: Pick up next yarn and leave a 4 inch tail, knit across. Cut Yarn leaving a 4 inch tail. Repeat first row with each additional yarn following this color pattern Y1 CO y2 k y3 k y4 k y5 k y6 k y1 k y2 k y3 k y4 k y5 k y6 k y1 BO This pattern can be made a more random stripe by putting all balls of yarn in a paper bag and picking them out one at a time to create a striped scarf and no 2 will ever be alike. I really like making scarves this way as they make it a fun expirence.
