Spring Yarn

Granny Tan had given me some yarn some time ago that screamed "SPRING" so I finally knit with them this year. At first I thought I'd do a potato chip scarf with the green as the base and the pink multicolour as the trim. But then I thought a potato chip scarf for spring/summer may not be all that useful. I wanted a wrap that could work as a scarf too but would be light enough for summer. The green yarn is Blue Sky Alpacas Alpaca and Silk. The pink yarn is a blend of 3 different novelty yarns. I went with a mesh pattern and was going to use the pink yarn to add on around the edge but once I got it done I decided the pink yarn would go nicely woven through the mesh.
I always get compliments when I wear it.

I had enough of the pink leftover so I made a short Montego Bay Scarf from Interweave Knits Summer 2007. It's a nice accent piece. I had a hard time getting a pic that shows the real colour.

Both pieces look wonderful. I would love to see the wrap in person - pictures never do justice to knitting masterpieces ;-)

I'm quite impress me with the nice scarves. Weaving in the pink yarn is a really neat idea.
