Pretty Pretty Scarf

So, didn't I just have a post about how I don't want to have too many WIPs?

Well this weekend I started another one.  It kind of has a back story.  I went to the store to buy yarn to make myself feel better after a minor mishap in the kitchen where I lit a skillet on fire and ruined it....not sure I want to fully explain my stupidity.

I had been drooling over this yarn for a while:

I got this picture off the Lion Brand page.  I forgot to take a picture of the yarn before I started using it.
I had a coupon, so I got this yarn for 50% off!!!

This is the scarf partially done.

The pattern I chose to do is silk-garden-sock-crochet-scarf.  I made mine a lot skinnier than the pattern said.
I have my scarf over halfway done already.  I thought one skein would do, but I actually had to go back out yesterday and buy a second one (another coupon, so also 50% off).  Its amazing how new yarn and a new project can make you feel better.

  1. Hello Sam! what beautiful yarn, it is very much like lovely Noro, but yay for it being half price!
    Two WIPS is very moderate of you, well done on managing to be restrained! I'm in a craft funk right now and have terrible startitis, I don't know whats wrong, too much ribbing on my mitts I'm knitting... maybe its time to start something lovely and colourful!
    have a lovely week!
