Yarn and a scarf

Colourful yarn that I purchased at Atlantic Fabrics on the way home from Halifax last Friday. I love all the colours and was thinking 'socks' when I saw it even though it's not acutal 'sock yarn.' The colours they offered in their sock yarn was just plain gross .................. so I chose these instead. They're all Patons Decor 75% Acrylic / 25% Wool 210 yds. / 192 metres Net wt. 3 1/2 oz. / 100g ......... Secret Garden Varg. ...... Mountain Top Varg. ......... Sweet Country Varg. ......... and First Spring Ombre. Probably I'll just sit and admire the beautiful colours for a while. It's not as though I don't have any WIP pieces that I could put my attention to you realize. {g}

A light little scarf that I knit up using a couple of balls of yarn purchased at a secondhand store and the simple scarf pattern that Jane told us about on her blog. Jane was correct ......... it was a very simple pattern ........... and I finally finished it on the third try. You want someone to mess up an easy pattern? ........ just give it to me to try. {g} It's a very soft and pretty scarf but the colours don't do a thing for my pale complexion so it's going in the box for future gifts; unless Heather makes a claim to it.

I love to put yarn in a basket and set it where I can see it; just thinking of the possibilities! Lovely colors and the scarf is beautiful! Bet Heather snatches it up!

Thanks Leslie! No, the scarf has ended up in the gift box. Heather also has a pale complexion so the scarf doesn't do a thing for her. She also mentioned that she prefered scarfs a bit more narrow.
