Pearl Softness...

I can see why knitting is currently the rage. It's so nice to have a hobby that you can pick up at any moment and put down a few minutes later without having to clean up half a room. I'm not ready to retire the ol' sewing machine yet, but I've enjoyed myself these last few days with this "new" hobby.

I don't plan on selling the scarfs I'm knitting, but if I was going to sell this one its name would be "Pearl Softness." This yarn is so soft & luscious! The winter-white color is beautiful. I'm keeping this one for myself. This time I only cast on 18 stitches and it's the perfect width for a scarf with this threadlike yarn. The beauty of this yarn with it's many soft, little scraggly threads is that you can't even make out the individual stitches. This is perfect for the novice knitter, because my stitches might be rather imperfect. Who can tell? Not me. That's for sure. Anyway, I have about a foot left to knit, but here's a preview ...

This does look soft. I know...knitting can be addicting! I hope you are having a wonderful holiday. I have enjoyed getting to know you.
Merry Christmas,

Hi Suzanne! This scarf is really sugary soft looking! I like that winter white also! I made one for my DIL a few years ago (my first time to make a scarf) and used the fluffier yarn, and believe me, I was so happy, since I did have a few mistakes in it, which were covered by that lovely yarn! When I gave it to her, I told her it was called the "Nobody's Perfect Scarf"!!! LOL. :)

Ohhh, let's rename this one as "Sugary Soft" -- that's a much better name for it! Thanks, Julie!

That is beautiful I am enjoying learning this also. Still using up the stash that I have here but can't wait to "buy" some yarn also. Christmas for us was yesterday, today is my day to relax and continue learning...it is addicting!
