Quick Summer Scarf

Today's Web-Letter from Classic Elite Yarns has a very interesting scarf.
You are holding two strands of yarn together on big needles. These are fun because both yarns change colours. You won't be bored making them. And you'll probably want to try another one with different colours. Knit up a bunch and give them as gifts.

One ball each of two different multi-color yarns make this tapered end scarf extra quick to knit and will add a pop of color to your summer wardrobe. Almost any combination of Santorini and Sandpiper will work well together - it may take you longer to choose your colorway than to knit it!
And you are using 8mm needles. Talk about quick.
Each strand of Sandpiper has five space-dyed shades, giving it highlights and shadows that occur organically as the eight plies interact.
Santorini's colorways sing along the matte and shiny textures inherent in the yarn, adding vibrant color to warm-weather garments, wraps and scarves.
My hostas are getting ready to bloom and I'm very excited. Every morning I pull in the driveway and walk the garden to see how things are growing.

I need to sign off and finish my shawl. Hopefully I can finish the last seven rows tonight.
