Addicted to this yarn and pattern
I just can't help myself!!! I've been knitting ribbed scarves using Patons Divine and I can't step away from that yarn!! The scarves are just so beautiful and WARM!! I've made one for my Grandma, Sister, ME! And I'm working on one for my mom right now. I also made a ribbed scarf using Homespun.

You'd think I'd be sick of ribbing by now...but I'm not. I just wish I could knit a bit faster...but I guess it's good I'm a little slow because working with Divine can be a little tricky. But it hides mistakes very well too.

The one I made for myself is in a "Soft Earth" color.....and I want to make a black one for me too (will hide Lucy's hair well).

The only thing I don't like is tweezing out all of Lucy's hair from everything I knit (unless it's for me...and then I don't care). I'm working on de-hairing the white one today. Oy!

Is anyone else addicted to a specific pattern or yarn right now?

Jivewhistle,

Do you have any pictures of your scarves? I have a friend who is just learning to knit and she's attempting a ribbed scarf with Divine Soft Earth and adding in the shiny Brilliant Gold glow). I'm so glad to hear that it knits up yummy and hides mistakes - i'll have to let her know! I'd love to see what it looks like knitted... What size kneedles are you using?

I'm knitting with Knitpicks Elegance at the moment - it's lovely and has a great sheen to it! I love it!

-hh

Oh that Gold Glow is beautiful!!! I never thought of using another yarn with this.

Here's my soft earth scarf.... I used size 10 1/2 needles for this one. But the others I've made I'm using a bamboo size 10 and my stitches are a bit tighter that way. Although, I can't decide which one I like better.

Wow!! That scarf looks fantastic!! And it's a GREAT picture of you!

We bought her size 10 bamboo needles so i think she'll be good to go. I'm so excited now!


Thanks for that! I'm sending her this link!

Hmmm... what about a chemo cap to donate seeing as this is Breast Cancer Awareness month..?? It's definitely soft enough...

I just bought some rose colored Patons Divine for a sleeveless mock turtleneck sweater for a friend. thanks for posting pics of what it looks like knitted up. I think my friend's sweater is going to come out nicely with this stuff.
