When I was in Germany my Aunt Jeanne sent me a whole box of GORGEOUS yarn. I was still knitting scarves and Novelty yarn was hard to come by in Germany.

Well, I outgrew scarves really quick, so I saved my yarn for better projects. As I was searching my stash for Dylan's yarn, I came across this gorgeous yarn.

The picture does NOT do this yarn justice. The colors are the pretty sherbert colors, but it takes a bold personality youth to wear them out in public. Hmmmm... how can I get my pretty yarn fix, but still keep my dignity? Then I remembered an episode of "Knitty Gritty" about combining yarns. TAAAAHHHH DAHHHH!!!


So I grabbed this eyelash yarn and went to town. I knit a really thick scarf/stole thinking I could just wear it as a wrap. Then I remembered seeing those Mobius scarfs and being wowed by them. And this is what I came up with. It's a little long so I'll wear it this way awhile. If it gets too annoying, I'll shorten it...no biggie.


The Yarn with the Eyelash and without. See the difference?

I've always wanted to knit one of those! Your shrug looks comfy!

You're getting very proficient at knitting. I have wondered, though -- how does a knit shrug fit with 116 degrees?? You guys need to move somewhere where there's a winter. (I just happen to know of such a place.)
