Making a new scarf project and using a new yarn that I am loving! Saw the yarn for the first time at Joann’s the other day. It’s called Stitch Nation by Debbie Stoller Bamboo Ewe. It’s made by Red Heart. There are several different blends of this brand and I was drawn to the Bamboo. It is 55% Bamboo and 45% Wool. It looks like it is “felt-able” since it calls for hand-washing in cold water. I’ll probably try to felt with it on my next project.
I purchased 2 skeins at $4.99 each and started looking for a quick 2 skein project. Found this pattern on Ravelry and even better, IT’S FREE! It’s called 198 yards of Heaven. Working this pattern with this beautiful yarn has really been Heavenly! The yarn itself feels very light weight and not as heavy as a worsted weight yarn, although it is listed as a “4” Medium yarn. The color is listed as Geranium. Sort of a red-slightly- peachy-orange flavor.
Of course, being a lacy pattern, it does require paying some attention to the pattern each row. It is knitting up very quick and I think will look great with a suit or under a winter jacket. It looks great too with a jeans shirt too.
