The adventurous Celia matched me with a scarf pal who likes jewel tones. Ever one to oblige, I trekked to my LYS and was delighted to find the latest from Eisaku Noro in stock. These rich Kureyon colorways are new for Fall 2005 - the skeins from top to bottom are #159, #147, and #163.
While it frequently seems as if the entire knitting blogoverse either has made, is making, or will make sweet Ruffles for self or another, I am firmly resolved not to do such a thing to my scarf pal. I refuse to be responsible for springing yet another Ruffles on an unsuspecting world and certainly not on my pal. Not I. No, no. Never, never, never!
Such vehemence has a cause: I've already knit my bit, a Ruffles knit in pink Bernat Softee Baby, 100% Acrylic on pink plastic needles.
So the Kureyon #147 pictured above is in the process of turning into Amanda Blair Brown's other design in Scarf Style, the edgy Stripes and Bobbles.
