Aren't these colours just too cute for words. Actually it's just the pink that looks bubblegum pukey to me. Luckily Fortissima put it next to a grey so that at least it doesn't look like I bought a Barbie Learn to Knit Kit.
They still feel good to knit and the intended recipient, a very spirited Scottish nurse in Dublin, looks good in these colours and will hopefully be distracted by the great "wicking" action.
The alpaca has found a purpose as a blockish scarf from Vogue Knitting on the Go: Scarves book, but I'm not married to the idea. The more I knit with this stuff, the more I don't want to stop touching it. Which makes me think that maybe a scarf with tassles would suit me better - I can't believe this has become my major criteria for a scarf pattern: something with tassles so that I can still play with the yarn post bind off.
Maybe I'll dream something up, I need to take a nap to be fresh for the Fasching (German for Karnival) Party this evening.
