Remember this tasty treat? When you sent me this batch of wee alpacas, it was like Christmas in March. I got a start on it, but the humidity in Nashville overtook me before I could get much going. The traditional Mid-south Switch-to-Cotton occurs kind of like the shift to daylight savings time: everybody agrees, on May 10, to put away all the furry, fuzzy fibers until October 5. So here I am, with this newfound little palate cleanser to keep me busy until I finish my swatch of navy chenille for your Sassy. (A swatch that has given me Vietnamlike flashbacks to another recent project using a navy blue, squirrely yarn. Twitches and tics.)
This gem comes from La Droguerie, the Paris yarn store that folks get kind of excited about. The French pattern kind of makes sense, once I found some nut’s web site featuring a glossary of knitting terms in four languages. I do wonder if it looks like it’s spoze to.
The colors in the first picture are more true, but I wanted you to see the fabulous random stripe pattern. This scarf is making me crave a big color project. I can’t quite believe how all these wack colors combine so felicitously.
Thank you for this souvenir of your trip to see the Frenchies last spring. It’s deevine.
