Aunt Geri here. A recent trip to Illinois provided a lot of rainy days (8 out of 10) and some fragmented knitting time for me. With the great Mississippi river being close to flood level, it was only appropriate that I knit this aquamarine colored shape-shifter scarf. It is an alpaca blend yarn in a gorgeous tonal blue that looks like a Caribbean tidal pool.
I have had plans for this scarf ever since I spun the “Pyrites of the Caribbean” yarn almost a year ago! It was one of my first wheel yarns and is still one of my favorites. The classy color comes from black alpaca blended with a beautiful gold silk. About 18″ of each end is beaded with pyrite colored glass beads and the scarf is knit as a tube on a circular needle.
Very pretty indeed Auntie Geri. I love snoods.
Snoods! You know, I kind of love that word. I ran across it for the first time years ago in a book. I think we need to revive it. We don’t use it much over here in the states.
It’s a lovely word – I agree.
