Now, Now ... no name calling! I know I'm already loopy!

What I mean is that I'm looking for a scarf pattern that would be similar to this scarf that is in the recent Talbot's catalog - the Holiday 2005 version.
http://www1.talbots.com/talbotsonline/index.asp?BID=S2005314115407D10C4D643CDE49ED8FF3F0

It just looks like it would be fun to make. I can't tell if it's made with the loop stitch as shown in Amy's video or if it is made from some kind of loopy yarn. Has anyone heard of a loopy yarn? I found this one ... which isn't quite what I'm looking for - it's more of a boucle: http://www.chadiscrafts.com/Bouclekippot.html

This (http://www.knithappens.net/shop/index.cfm?Product_ID=GGHtib&page=details.cfm&cartaction=none&thisrow=10&action=list&criteria=3207&startrow=1&mystartrow=1&maxrows=20&cat=3&man=&stay=&afid=&searchcat_id=&itemprice=&searchfield=&searchman_id=&boolean=OR&var1=&var2=&var3=&return_product_id=&makeid=&modelid=&modelyear=) one may work:

And ... how do I make those links I'm copying in to this post look like the rest of you do it? With just one word highlighted that takes you to the link?

Thanks!

Brenda Louise ... I KNEW you'd have to respond to that subject line in some fashion! :devil:

KK -- thanks for fixin' me up with the links ... if I had just looked around a little longer I would have seen the URL link. S L O W L Y but Shirley (quit calling me Shirley!) I'll figure all of this out.

Now ... where's a pattern!?!

Thats close to what it looked like, Rebecca. But, oh ... do I have the patience to make each one of those loops!? I doubt it. I'm part of the Microwave Generation, you know. I want it NOW!!!

I can't wait to brave it, Rebecca. I LOVE all the sock yarn -- I'm just not adept at handling the DPN's quickly yet. I can use them ... but I'm slow and awkward with them. And, my ol' eyes have a little trouble with the thinner yarn and smaller needles. I'm not a very patient person. I have to remember -- it's not the destination, but the journey - that is important.
