When my family went to Seaside over Christmas, my husband and I took a nice little walk to the local yarn store. It used to be a quilt shop that I loved, but that one is gone now. Yarn is about as nice.
My husband is very encouraging to my hobbies and when we go together to a shop, he encourages me to buy. Isn't that nice. I tend to be stingy on myself and only buy a good sale. Actually I found some mohair on a good sale and can't wait to find the right pattern to use it.
But I also splurged on a couple of specialty yarns for scarves that looked fun. And they were.
This is one of those yarns that expands in the knitting. It's like a netting. I really like how it works.
This one is from a mohair, very soft.
You cast on the long ways and increase to double it several times. That' how it gets the curl.
