Project 5 is another scarf for a friend, but in a completely different yarn...I'm having fun experimenting with yarns. This is Berocca's "Link", a super-chunky wool/acrylic blend in variegated color combinations. I'm using what I call (they don't) "Rainclouds"--a series of blues and slightly grayed lighter blues that looks like rain clouds we hope to see again. It was the rationale for my buying the huge size 35 needles.
I had a lot of trouble getting started because I had never done yarn-overs before, and this pattern called for them in both knit and purl rows. So there was a lot of casting on, messing up, ripping out, but at least the work went fast once I got going. Here's how the first few rows looked:
And here it is beginning to look like it might be a scarf someday.
