I go to a knitting group twice a month, and this week we were forced to have a bit of a tidy-up. There’d been a water leak in the meeting room and our cupboards had been turned out and moved. During the re-organisation process I offered to take home some large skeins of yarn to wind them into balls using my yarn swift and ball winder. One of the skeins was a particularly attractive shade of turquoise and it was suggested that I brought it back knitted up, rather than wound into a ball.
The skein turned out to be four skeins, each of 30g. I’d guess the yarn is 100% wool since it’s worsted spun and breaks quite easily. It’s a bit neglected but now it’s in four little yarn cakes it looks fairly inviting.
So, what should I do? I need to make something that will appeal to people who either buy at a charity market or a stall at the hospital. I’m thinking a lace scarf would be best, but I’m drawn to yet another crescent-shaped shawl, like Annis. After all, I wear my Pimpelliese, Mezquita and Annis wrapped around my neck as scarves: I like the variety of shapes and layers I can achieve. But would someone else think the same?
