On the Needles

Not a very productive week.  Did you ever purchase yarn for a project and then realized it just wasn't right.  I like giving knitted things for gifts especially Christmas.  And yes I do start early and work through out the year.

I purchased Blue Sky Alpaca Worsted Hand Dyes in Charcoal

The pattern was going to be Low Brow Cowl and Hat.

I just didn't like the combination.  So I decided on a man's scarf.    The pattern is very nice and masculine in the color I chose.  Blue Sky Alpaca is a lovely yarn to work with.  I decided to add ten stiches but it was way to wide.  So the frogging began.  No problem.  But I was a little discouraged, put the needles down, worked on some applique and will cast on again this weekend.


  1. Your yarn will make a great men's scarf and the pattern is great!

  2. Happens to the best of us! I'm all the time changing the yarn I want to use for something. But it usually gets used in something else, so no harm :*)

  3. Isn't alpaca great yarn? Should be a nice warm scarf!

  4. The yarn will make a great man's scarf. Nice design pattern too. I really like your original pattern for a woman's scarf or cowl.

  5. This yarn looks like it would be soft. Perfect for a scarf! Glad to have found you and will be following! ~Terri
