Spice Cake Scarf

Find it on Etsy
Find it on Ravelry

I’ve been making this scarf for a little while and I’m really enjoying it, so it’s now an available pattern. So far, my favorite yarns to make this in are Berocco Folio and Tosh merino light. Both very different yarns – the Folio is an elegant and luxurious feel and a great drape, while the tosh has a color depth that’s rustic and rich. GREAT choices!

Here are some I’ve made with Berocco Folio….

Folio in Violet
Folio in Pacific
Folio, with a mohair edging.

And here’s one in the Tosh merino light…

Love it!

It’s rally hard to let these go – but they’re part of my Etsy offering for the fall and will be available soon at my new Etsy shop for finished items:

Windowpane Scarf

This Windowpane Scarf was so easy to make and the yarn creates all the “WOW”. I had this yarn sitting around for a while and lately, I’ve been on a mission to use up my older stash when possible. I can’t say I’m on a “yarn diet” because, as with ANY diet, I am not very good at it.

Irish Fantastica Crocheted Shawl

I was able to use up some older stash in this shawl that kept asking, “What’s my purpose? Why do you buy so much sock yarn and never use it?” Ugh.

I really need to shop less and create more – possibly even destash a bit. I just love all the sock yarn colorways people come up with so I tend to collect them. I have so many, unwound skeins and I love looking at them. Maybe that IS INDEED their only purpose in my life. To be admired.

This shawl was made with Bugga! by The Sanguine Gryphon in the colorway Cuban Cockroach. Creepy name, but FABULOUS color!

Across The Pond

I tend to make the same things over, and over, and over….. Do you? I just get these favorites going and they’re like old friends – familiar and comforting.

The South Bay Shawlette by Lion Brand Yarn is exactly one of those for me.

This one is in Malabrigo Yarn Sock and is a gift from me to my aunt in Ireland for when she hosts us this summer. Unfortunately, ran out then ordered more and the colors were so different, decided to stop there and go ahead with the different dye lot to edge it with a substantial size border. I think it worked out well and looks like a planned design. 🙂

The edging is from the Lauren shawl.
