The cold is coming

The cold weather is coming and it's time to start thinking about scarves. Not lightweight, look pretty scarves (which I like) but heavier, keep you warm (but still look pretty) scarves.

This is Cora knit in Rowan Colourscape Chunky. 2 skeins of yarn and 7mm needles. The cables are easy-I've knit the scarf and it is hanging in the store. The pattern is no longer on Rowan's website but I have permission to give it to you if you purchase the yarn.

The yarn is discontinued but we have stock in lots of colours-bright and earth tones.

This is the Trellis Scarf from Blue Sky Alpacas in their Bulky. We have 22 shades in stock.

50% alpaca
50% wool

41m on a 100gram skein. That's bulky!

While we're talking scarves why not hats too? Blue Sky Alpacas has a new booklet for hats knit in Bulky.
Beth and Roko are lying on the bed (mattress in the living room) and Beth is icing his leg. This is giving me a bit of a break. For some reason Beth has been messing up her knitting a lot tonight. I've been ripping out more than I want to. I'm not sure how she knit for 5 days while I was away with no problem and then when I get home she messes up.

Very pretty scarf. I love large cables.
