I haven't knit in FOREVER! Seriously, It's definitely been several years. Remember, I taught myself to knit and crochet when I was like 8 and did it for years. I've never did any fancy socks or cardigans but I sure could churn out some afghans, pillows, and other crafty stuff. Well I've had the sudden urge to knit up a scarf or several scarves. Mainly because I've recently became obsessed with scarves and would definitely like to make a few of my own. Secondly, I'll be out of town this weekend for Christmas and would like to bring something I could work on while I'm away from my Babies (my Sewing machines). I used to knit scarves back in the day and would defintely like to pick it back up.
In search of a quick scarf pattern to accomplish this weekend, I ran across this Lion Brand pattern
Let's just say I was immediately SMITTEN! I love the style and look of this scarf. It's perfect! Plus it could be made relatively quickly---in a couple of hours or so. So today I set out to look for the yarn and the size 50 Knitting needles (those babies are huge). Well I found the needles at Michael's but after looking at Jo-Ann's, Michael's, and Wal-Mart for the yarn I turned up empty handed. I'm running out of options. Where can I find this in town. Tomorrow I'll check A.C. Moore and Hancock Fabrics. I'm getting desperate!!! Where can I find this yarn????? I hope I find it so I can have it for my weekend trip. But if not, I still want it.
