Olympic Project at 40%
Pattern: Wavy Scarf from Knitty
Yarn: Cascade 220 colour# 4009
Completed: 4 repeats of 10
So pretty. It's remarkable what knits and purls executed in a particular order can do. This is my first time with Cascade yarn and I like it very much. I haven't often worked with 100% wool in the past.
My one problem is that the pattern calls for 2 skeins of yarn and 10 repeats of the pattern. It has become obvious that 2 skeins will do only 9 repeats. Now, I must decide if I buy more yarn or settle for a shorter scarf.
I absolutely adore this colour. I've tried to photograph it but really, the camera does not do it justice. It's actually a combination of different flecks of blues and green. Lovely as can be.
