Having Fun

I haven't bought yarn for ages...but I couldn't resist this beautiful Plymouth Yarn KUDO cotton/synthetic/silk blend when I saw it on display with a demo scarf at Yarn Dance (our adorable local yarn shop)
The "waves" scarf pattern came free with the yarn.  It is my first attempt at reading a pattern, doing yarn-overs, and dropping stitches on purpose.  But thanks to Patty at the shop for giving me a mini-lesson on those new skills...and to my dear mother-in-law Nancy for a much needed second lesson...I am off and running.  I just wish the photo did the yarn justice.  The colors are much more vibrant in real life, with flecks of many other colors in each strand.

It is super simple, even for a novice like me. But it does come out looking very interesting and lacy. I can send it to you if you like.

When you get such fun yarn, it makes it so so easy to get carried away. Love the color transitions.
