Remember that beautiful blue yarn I received from my Secret Pal 5? My SP5 sent me THREE skeins of Classic Elite Inca Alpaca in a gorgeous dark blue and suggested that it might be the right amount for a scarf that she had seen in Pam Allen's scarfSTYLE.
I totally agreed, but I had another scarf in mind from that book. I like the Vintage Velvet Scarf designed by Lisa Daniels. I think it will turn out beautifully, but I'm a bit worried about felting it. I'm not sure I want to do that. Right now I've cast on my 34 stitches and managed to knit about 20 rows. I'll post a picture when it's a little bit more interesting. Maybe by later tonight or tomorrow morning.
I guess since the boys are getting ready to go back to school, I'm also getting ready for fall and winter by turning my thoughts to knitting scarves and sweaters.
