Take two on the new scarf


I wrote last week that I had started a new scarf using Ticker Tape but I really wasn’t pleased with it. I think the problem was that I hadn’t picked large enough needles and the fabric was a lot denser than I wanted. So I dug through my stash and found the perfect yarn for a long, new cuddly scarf – Paton’s Mosaic in Bottle Green. I’m knitting this on 6 mm needles, making it a bit narrower than usual – only 12 sts wide. I have two balls so it’s going to be nice and long.

What I love about this yarn is the strand of nylon spun with the acrylic. The nylon has periodic tufts of polar fleece that make it very cozy feeling. The varigation is consistent but doesn’t appear too strippy when knit up.

I’m reading The Weather Makers by Tim Flannery right now. The review is due to HarperCollins for their First Look program on Feb. 3 so I’ll post it here soon. So far I am really enjoying this.
