WIP - Textured Windows Scarf
As many of you may remember I'm extremely sensitive to wool. I can knit with it fine, but anything on my neck, chest and shoulders is itchy...yes, even malabrigo. ~sigh~ Anyway, the manager at my LYS brought some new yarn over and asked me to feel it. As usual it felt soft to my hands and cheek, but the "chest test" is the important one.. It wasn't bad at first try so I bought a couple skeins to try. OMG! I think this is one I can finally tolerate! Of course I haven't given it a long afternoon test, but really think I can deal with this! It's so incredibly soft and so nice to knit with! It's called Leche and is by Queensland Collection. I'm using the pink for this scarf.

So here you go. No pattern yet, but I'll write it up when I'm done if anyone is interested. It's very fast and easy.

I really like your pattern. Very different from the scarf patterns I have seen.

If we're interested?....so, that's a joke...right? Have you ever known this group to not be interested in a new pattern
