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.
