Stork's Nest Scarf
Pattern: Stork's Nest Scarf by Nancy Bush published in Piecework magazine Jan, 2008
Yarn: Cherry Hill Suri Alpaca
Thoughts: I loved the pattern, easy and quick knit. The yarn on the other hand pooled badly. If you look at it from a distance it seems badly stained with big pools of blue and pink. Yuck! I just don't like variegated yarns for knitting.
Here is the pattern detail, pretty little thingys blending into one another.
The "wheel" picture of the finished Forest Path Stole. Same yarn and color way as the scarf, different dye lot. I think that it did not pool on the stole due to the pattern.
I also finished the body of Medieval Tapestry sewed the armhole steeks and picked up one sleeve last night. The sleeves are knit from the top down. Looks like it is going to be a fast knit. I like it lots.
