First (as re-enacted by my daughter) I thoughtfully peruse the inventory, keeping in mind the type of yarn and weight I need for my project.
My gaze falls upon that one color that makes me swoon. That one shade that sticks out over the rest. I check the weight, I check the yardage, I check the price and ...
Taken from Interweave Knits Holiday 2008 issue, I thought this scarf looked lovely. The price of silk yarn, however, not so lovely. So hemp yarn it is! My scarf will have a more lace-like texture.
Now, my hope is that this scarf won't take nearly as long as those socks!
