scarf progress… hmmm, ideas for next project…

Since I saw one of these in the same yarn in Ravelry with only 2.5 skeins, I thought that maybe I could get away with just the three. I’m nearly to the end of the third, so I think I’ll ball up the last one and use it too.

The gold one, in Seduce, has more heft than the blue one in Seasilk. I suspect the Seduce won’t elongate quite as much, which is another reason to use the fourth skein.

But I’m ready to start another project!

I’m thinking a giant rectangle, perhaps in loose linen stitch, perhaps in garter, maybe some other woven type stitch, out of these colors,

They remind me of the sea, deep and rich blues, some paler frothy ones, greens, and a bit of purple. Oh, and some sparkle and light.

I saw this great woven thing, with three buttons toward the end of the long sides, and button loops opposite. You could wear it as a shawl, as a crazy scarf thing, as a shrug, even as a head and/or neck warmer. I’m thinking I’ll knit something similar. For a friend having foot surgery end of next month… she’ll be stuck off her feet for eight weeks!

And then there’s the other projects I have in mind: scandinavian mittens out of my handspun icelandic, hat out of the windspun from Hope Spinnery, Nanny Kennedy sweater, finishing the maplewing, mittens for MIL. Something to work on during the next furlough day, eh?

    Ooh, and you could leave all the ends free and it’d be crazy fun fringe and… yeah, I like your idea.

    Maybe you could just make an artful display of balls of yarn, since the colors go so well together.
