I picked up some beautiful Habu yarn last week - N-80. It is 4 fine strands of merino that are wrapped in a black silk thread. I picked up 3 different colors to make a gauzy colour block scarf. I think this yarn looks really elegant and was eager to cast on immediately.
I am using the Coco Knits Nora Fringe scarf pattern, minus the fringe. It is a basic garter knit scarf, and because the fine yarn is knit on larger needles, the resulting fabric is beautifully airy and light. I'd spent most of my craft time working on this, and am making good progress so far. This one is a gift knit.
Our new little furry family member took it upon himself to remind me that I also have the Clapok-tus scarf in progress too, by running laps with it around the house. Aah he's a yarn lover - skeins of yarn and knitted socks or slippers are not safe around this little fella! But look at this bundle of sweetness... yes, all is forgiven!
His little show did prompt me to spend some time on this scarf too. Naturally this one is going much more slowly, but is very soothing to knit on. I love the colours in this soo much, and think that my natural preference is to work on the smaller needle sizes.
That's all from here. It is girls day today and we off to pick up the painted pots from last weekend's party.
Wishing you a wonderful Sunday, and Happy Mother's Day to all in the UK.
