Tragedy sets in... I ran out of yarn for my Irish Hiking Scarf. I guess I knew I would because I only had 2 balls of this Iceland Madil that my friend's brought me from Italy and I am having a hell of a time finding a place online to purchase it. I missed a damn ebay auction by like 15 minutes so I'm screwed. I have a wonderful half of a scarf that I would love to be wearing but I can't cause I don't have anymore yarn.

I am still going to try to hunt down a few more balls cause I would like to finish it and maybe even a matching hat.

Even though I won't get to finish it for awhile I am happy with how it has turned out so far. The stitch is nice and easy and it knits up really fast. Hence, my getting this far after only a couple days.

I'll just have to make another one with some of the Caron Simply Soft cause I pretty much have a huge Rubbermaid bin full of it, in all sorts of colors. Diggin' it.

it's gorgeous! maybe you could find a similar yarn in a contrasting color to make it half and half? just a thought...

look at you with your fancy knitting!!

here's a lesson I learned the hard way...always buy extra yarn in the same lot number!! I didn't do that once and my scarf looked aweful!

and another lesson i just learned was to actually figure out how to knit in the actual gage! my hat that i made for Kayla is now a hat for me! :-( So sad!!
