I suppose I was waiting for the right pattern, but I ended up going back to this shawl pattern. I made it in a sport weight in the color Graphite, and I used an N hook so the drape is quite significant. I added a tassel to each end, including the back point.
I've worn this twice already and got compliments from strangers both times! And they were younger women, so maybe I'm onto something here. The yarn is delicious, and worth every penny. I'm eyeing another skein in Daffodil, or maybe Silver Fox.
This one is made from 2 skeins of Noro IHaveNoClue. I think it is Kureyon. I will probably gift this one, because the colors are not me. The yarn was bought online, on sale. When it arrived I was dissapointed and tossed it into the same cupboard next to the Pashmina.
The pattern is One Skein Chevron Scarf, that I've made several times already, and despite the name, I always use 2 skeins. I'm on the lookout now for more yarn de-stashing patterns. Any ideas?
Ott lamp at Joann's with a coupon, but it honestly seems like overkill. Never mind the family comments regarding burning eyeballs and needing to break out the sunglasses while they're trying to watch T.V. I might need to rethink where I sit, and set up a work space in the corner of the living room.
After all, it isn't enough that I have a whole room dedicated to fabric and yarn, and usually have to clear my projects off the table so we can eat dinner.
Do you guys have your own little space? What works for you?
