I wear Scarves in Spring

Spring has sprung. Thanks goodness. The warm weather doesn't stop me from making lovely little winter accessories though. Never.

What is it this time? It's Veronique Avery's Lace Ribbon Scarf from the most recent Knitty. Anyone that knows me knows that it takes VERY warm weather for me NOT to wear a scarf so I had to knit this lovely little one. It's so light and airy that it could be worn this time of year. Maybe that's just me?

(That's my sister. Thanks for being a model sister.)

After flipping through the new Knitty, I happened to notice right away that we carry the yarn they call for in the pattern. I quickly cast on. I was pretty excited and maybe didn't think it through so well before getting going that perhaps the colourway I chose was too wild to really show off the pattern. Nah well- I'm happy with it regardless.
It was a super fun knit and I'd do it again. In fact, I'd definately do it again. I have big plans for more of these babies.

Yarn? 1 skein of Classic Elite Alpaca Sox (I do like my scarfs super long though and next time I might just splurge and go for 2 skeins)
Colourway? Dandelion 1812
Needles? 3.25 mm

I shall leave you with the taste of Spring in your mouth as I head back down to the shop now. This is what's there waiting to greet me this morning.
