Sorry I haven’t been around lately. After the wedding, the visitors, the honeymoon and the job stress, I wound up taking a small hiatus from knitting. I made some Christmas ornaments for family members. Now, I’m preparing to go back to NY for Christmas and while they enjoy their snowstorm, I know I am going to freeze. Living in Southwest Florida has been a blessing for me, but has spoiled me to cold weather. I used a pattern from ravelry to make a floppy beret to keep my head warm and wanted to make a scarf that would go.
This is my Triple Cabled Scarf made with Plymouth Alpaca Prima yarn double strandled with size 10 straight needles. I am in love with this scarf! The yarn had been in my collection for well over a year, waiting for the perfect project. Thank you Gabriella’s Yarn Shop for this! She no longer has this in stock, but she has many many great yarns.
