Samantha had given me some yarns from a huge stash she got from Freecycle, including some light-blue eyelash yarns. I am not terribly fond of light blue but am intrigued by eyelash yarn. So I'd been searching for a yarn to combine with it. I was in Beverly's (shudder) and a woman and I started chatting in the knitting aisle. I grabbed a skein of similar eyelash yarn, and she pulled out a skein of Lion Brands "Micro Spun" in a gorgeous shade of intense turquoise. The photos don't show off the turquoise very well (it's a little washed out) but it does peek out from behind the eyelash rather intriguingly. I was going to offer it to Sami's mom but I have a feeling she'd decline. What to do with it?
Having finished that, I frogged my second try at the 2-way eyelash scarf I bought yarn for, and started, easily a year ago. (My first foray into Yarn! on Santa Clara.) For my third try (I think this is it), I cast on 20 stitches VERY loosely and am just knitting a tube. This scarf should be able to be pulled lengthwise for a neck scarf and widthwise for a warm cowl. It's more purply/violet than the red in the photos. HAPPY multi, on Clover wooden circulars, size 15, 16" long. I wonder how far I'll get in church today?
