Thanks to everyone who voted last week about which yarn I should choose for my friend JS’s scarf. And the winner is…
I pretty much love this yarn, which I bought at the Finger Lakes Fiber Arts Festival last year. (As an aside, if you’ll be in the Hemlock, NY area on Saturday, September 15, I will again be teaching at the festival this year.)
I am on the fence about using the same pattern I used for OB’s scarf (since the three of us celebrate the winter holidays in a group) or just designing a different scarf for JS. I have two design-related goals for the second Year of Projects, and with time being a premium these days, I might just need to combine my Holiday Stashdown Challenge with my YOP goals.
I haven’t made any other progress on my holiday crafting list since my last post, and I definitely want to finish at least one more project by the end of August. This Bitsy Knits yarn is so pretty that I’m itching to get started on the scarf. I just have a few secret projects to finish up first .
