got FINGERS?

When I first began knitting I didn't know how to use needles.  To be honest, I still only know two stitches! 

 

I like to collect different colors too!

I was blessed with finding a large selection of yarn in a thrift store approx 15 years ago. Since then I have developed my talents in color blending yarns.

Alone color can be so different than when blended together.  Swirling in my fingers I use a simple braiding stitch to make a chain.  With chains combined a scarf can be formed.

Over the past few years I have made more than 100 scarves!   I have also been blessed wil more and more yarn!! 

When only scraps will do

There are so many small bits of yarn in my stash, I search constantly for ways to use them.

This scarf is a simple knit stitch with a row of drop stitching in between the changes of colored yarns and strings

My fave thing to do is blend the colors together and knit with 3--5 strands at a time.    I used 10 mm needles to give a loose and casual look to the final piece

I think the design is simple, beautiful and dead one of a kind!
