Jemimah - I just finished the same chevron scarf pattern!  I love your yarn though!  How did you seam the two pieces together?

I didn't! Just one piece - both ends look fine, just not the same. My ends don't match and I don't care Cheesy

Looking forward to seeing your version!

You crack me up!  lol  Smiley  What kind of yarn is it?  Its really pretty and totally up my alley (that's already stuffed with yarn).

Thanks for the compliments.  When we're finished the dollhouse I'll do a complete post.  I also have a few pics of the dress (nighty) my 5 year old niece made almost all by herself., but have to edit for safety.

Looking for Mccalls 6337 sewing pattern, if you have a copy you'd be willing to share/give/sell please let me know.  The bag costs $60 and I think perhaps I could make it cheaper/

A variety of leftovers - the plain green is Lion brand merino, the plain grey and plain teal are a local wool. The multi coloured one was dyed by a friend on ravelry, it's a one off I think!

I often have trouble finding patterns that work with variegated yarn - don't always like the "busy" effect. I really liked this one though, especially combined with some plain stripes Smiley

Can you have too much yarn? My hubby thinks so, but I don't think he knows about yarn really  Wink

Oh wow.  I am always so impressed by knitting because it's one of the few crafts that I haven't picked up. I love that grey shawl! And the tie-dye is very fun! Awesome, awesome stuff.

I am not a fan of varieagated yarn unless it is for socks, but that pattern seems to work well with it...thanks for explaining your yarn changes...I would rather insert some plainer yarn in as well...I am about 40 rows into the pattern...why oh why do I cruise Craftster after midnight?  I get into a lot of trouble when I do... Grin

HOWEVER...I also cleared out one small closet to fit my WIP bags and some of the yarns I will be using this fall...so some good came of the cruise!

Hope everyone is having a nice weekend!

Thanks J_kievet...I look forward to more pics from you!

Me too! I love long stripes like Noro, but short colour changes not so much. It looks SO pretty in the skein, but generally (to me anyway) not so good when knitted up for garments (socks the exception).

People have given me some beautiful skeins, so I'm often on the lookout for patterns that will make the most of the pretty colours without the "busy" effect. Linen stitch works well for nice colour blending. Combining with plain yarns is my "go to" technique. I have a WIP scarf at the moment where I'm doing linen stitch, two rows plain, 1 row variegated. It's a cool effect - little spots of colour on one side and fine stripes on the other (example by someone else - not variegated but you get the idea). You can get a similar effect alternating plain and variegated with a Honey Cowl (example by me - this is lovely long stripe Noro, but you get the idea again!)

Absolutely not.  Your husband is clearly wrong about this.  If you want, I can have mr.fantastic give him a call and set him straight!
