As a result, I am declaring this weekend "Self-Care Weekend." I will drink massive amounts of hot tea and crochet until my fingers fall off- all whilst sitting in front of the pellet stove, warming my toes.
This is the project on which I am currently working:
It is a very simple scarf pattern. I found it here. In the blog post, the person uses this yarn, but I had this yarn on hand:
This yarn is 70% alpaca and 30% bamboo. So far, the scarf is squishy and soft- just what you want in a scarf. The finished project will take a little over 340 yards of yarn- which makes the cost (5 skeins at $13.00 per skein) around $65.00. When I looked the yarn up to see how much I paid for it, I noticed this particular color has been discontinued. I'm glad I usually follow the advice given to me by the ladies I used to knit with in Alamosa, CO- always buy enough skeins to finish your project- then buy an extra skein just in case!
