A few years ago I bought this alpaca silk yarn that I just love. The feeling of it is amazing. The problem is that I have nearly 2000 yards of fingering weight yarn. Now for a shawl that might be fine (but we all know how long it takes me to knit up a shawl). I've had the pattern for the Stupidly Simple Triangle Scarf printed out for the past few months and I've been trying to decide what yarn to use. Either I have too little of a yarn or it isn't the right gauge. Then it hit me. Take the yarn I love and double it up. It would be thick enough for the pattern, I'd get to use all 2000 yards of it, and I get to make a pattern I've been dieing to try out. In the end, this is what you have. I'm just a short way into it, but I'm just loving every minute of knitting it up. It is silly easy, which makes it perfect for TV watching!
I'm a knitter and a lover of all fiber arts. Could there be enough time in the day to design and knit everything you want?? I keep busy by being outside, getting into trouble, and being a general good pain in the ass!
