We all have those balls of yarn we buy that we have no idea what we will make .I simply cannot help buying yarn I have hundreds of balls(I kid you not) staring back at me .The above picture is what I bought on day one of the wonderful Knit Nation 2012 . I spent more the second day.
I'm sure you are aware that yarn speaks to us.
You know how it is you open the yarn cupboards( yes, I have more than one) and each and every ball tells you a story. The trips around Britain where you always happen to find a yarn shop. The yarn shows. The holidays to Belgium, France, Spain, Italy ,Portugal, America oh my goodness America was so bad I had to send the yarn home in a parcel. I paid such a lot in tax duty, all because I have to have that yarn.
Every ball was destined to be something I had such high hopes for each and every skein. A neck warmer , baby booties, cardigans , socks the list is endless. They talk, they try to get your attention., I'm not very faithful I love them and leave them haha. So with that in mind, I have decided to try and fall in love with the yarn in my cupboard .
I have loved this pattern for awhile. I had planned on making a blanket but I can't commit to such a large project at the moment .So far I have used two balls of Drops delight shade 1199 multi-coloured) and two balls of Drops alpaca .7120 a light greyish green.Just a simple scarf that looks as though I have selected lots of colours.I think it is very Missoni- esque . I think is so effective. The green yarn is the perfect compliment for the multi pink .So go on ,venture into your yarn box and lets fall in love with the stuff you already have together.
