While contemplating thee construction details of Colour Block, I knit my first spring scarf. The yarn is Bolivia, purchased on my recent yarn crawl day. True North Yarns in Barrie are clever people. The first thing I saw when entering the store was a delightful spring-coloured scarf. Who can resist that on a snowy winter's day. Not me, it seems.
The scarf is an easy knit - 10mm needles, 18 stitches, and knit until the yarn runs out. In my case that gave me a scarf the length of my queen size bed.
Bolivia, true to it's hand spun origins, has lots of thick and thin parts.
It will be wonderful with a light, spring jacket. Lucky me, I have scored 2 such coats recently at ridiculously low prices during Zellers closing out sale. It was meant to be.
