I occasionally get sucked in by a beautiful skein of yarn. Somehow they tend to be handspun and/or variegated. I usually give in and buy only one skein. Then the dilemma begins. What in the world do I make with just one skein? They are often very small skeins with very big price tags. Above is my newest purchase. It is from a local spinner that has her own animals. Thank goodness for Ravelry. It certainly helps with the decision making.
This is Zanziba by Colinette Yarns. See what I mean? Luscious and variegated, thick and thin, GORGEOUS! What to do, what to do?
A few weeks ago, I showed you the beginnings of a new knitting project from one lowly skein. I decided to make Teva Durham's Leaf Cravat.
You can find the pattern at Interweave Press. The cravat is finally finished. It sat for several days without being touched. I think it turned out pretty darn cute. I'll let you know next Winter if it was good for keeping me warm. On to the next project.
