A Scarf

Sometimes a knitter needs to go back to the beginning and knit a scarf. In this case, the yarn came first. I really wanted to use this discontinued Artful Yarns Serenade, cotton/angora blend that's been sitting in my stash for years. Veronik Avery's Transitional Scarf from her Knitting 24/7 book provided the perfect pattern - just the right fibre and yardage.
The plushy texture of the yarn made it a delight to work with and the eight row repeat of the pattern kept it interesting. Unfortunately, the slight violet tones in the pink, don't complement my colouring. This scarf is not meant for me. Into the gifting pile it goes until I find some fresh faced young thing who can wear it.
