After my big lace shawl was finished, I wanted something easy and on much bigger needles. I did a pattern search on Ravelry and found the Infinitude Scarf. I already knew that I wanted to use Alpaca with a Twist in my stash. With spring around the corner, I wanted to knit something green. I picked this yarn up when I was in Pittsburgh. I cannot remember when......maybe my sister will remember. Anyways, so far it is relaxing just knitting and purling and not following a chart. I know eventually I will want something that is complicated but for now easy knitting is just dandy.
This yarn is Mirasol Tupa. It is a wool/silk blend that I think would make a lovely cowl or hat or pair of mitts. I have yet to find which pattern I would like, I only just started looking today. The best aspect of knitting is deciding what to make. I always buy yarn I like with a general project in mind then afterwards I decide on the specific pattern. Vary rarely is it the other way around. Unless I stumble across a lovely pattern that I just HAVE to make.
