Some recent purchases

Aslan Trends Tango - LYS Haus of Yarn has had a shop model scarf made with this yarn and although it's mostly acrylic, it's very soft and I kept going back to it. So, I finally bought two different skeins, one variegated in black, gray and white and one in navy blue. It's a slightly nubby yarn and the pattern for the scarf came with the purchase of the yarn. It's knit with size 10 needles, so it will be a fast knit.

I've been working on the Ishbel during the Tour de France. I only work on it while we watch that grueling race. I decided to make the large version and I have now completed the A & B sections twice. I have the last A section to do and then I get to move on to Sections C, D, & E.

I also purchased this beautiful Malabrigo to make the Owl Cowl and Neckwarmer. A free pattern on Ravelry.

I completed the Potato Chip scarf knit with Mini Mochi. I still have the other one with Plymouth Kudo on the needles and I'm working on getting that one complete as well. This is knit with one skein of Mini Mochi on size US8 needles. The scarf is approximately 36 inches long. It's perfect to place around your neck and tuck it in to a jacket and wear it loose. It's not long enough to wrap several times around the neck, but with the ruffles it's not really necessary anyway. The ruffles add plenty of bulk.

I love the color changes in the Mini Mochi. Nice purchases and Ishbel is coming along. I'm currently working on 2 WIPS and need to block Traveling Woman. Maybe tomorrow.

Love that Ishbel! I still want to make a lace shawl but haven't decided yet on the pattern. BTW, I saw the Citron make up in a magenta Kidsilk Haze at and LYS in Hilton Head. It was gorgeous. So interesting how the yarn choice can make it look like a different pattern altogether.
