Remember this yarn?
I made a nice big skein from this hank, which was a bit of a hassle since I never did that. That is as far as I got, my needles haven't touched this lush yarn yet.
I wanted to make socks, my very first socks.
But then it hit me....
What if I mess up those socks? Shouldn't I be practicing a bit with less pretty yarn?
And if I don't mess up, this yarn will stay hidden in my shoes. What a waste!
So, I'm very sorry to disappoint you all, I don't think I will be making socks with this yarn. I want to make something that can be seen. So back to Ravelry to search for a fitting pattern.
It has to be wearable, since the yarn is so soft and warm.
It has to be something that can be made from 440 yards of sock yarn, I only have one skein.
It has to be easy enough for a good knit on the sofa while watching a movie.
It has to be pretty.
I found just the thing, this scarf:
Soft merino yarn covering my neck sounds like a delight! Sure, winter is ending *hooray!*. However spring and summer can be pretty cold here in Holland. The pattern looks delicate and yet it is not complicated to knit.
I'm excited to be starting a new knitting project! Lately all I have been knitting are hexipuffs, which is great but a side project couldn't hurt. So what do you think? Should I stick with the socks, or go with the scarf?
Wish you all a happy Thursday!
