I started knitting a new scarf a few days ago. This yarn is variegated in all shades of blue. It's 100% alpaca and is from Chile. It's soft and such a pleasure to work with. I have a ton of it because, well, it was on sale from one of my favorite yarn websites. To get the sale price, you had to buy a ton. With big plans of sweaters and such, I went ahead an bought the ton.
Now, I see no sweater in my future with this yarn. I tried. It just wasn't draping in a way that was appropriate for a garment. Oh well.
The pattern is full of slipped stitches, which give the scarf the woven look, which is best seen in the 2nd photo.
What do I do with all these scarves I knit? I sell some at my booth at the State Fair. I TRY to sell them in my second etsy shop, A Peaceful Life and I give lots of them away to friends.
