My current assignments were starting to get frustrating so I gave myself some yarn-play time. By stepping away from the problem project for a bit and working on a super easy, fun & quick project (or rather projects), I am able to work out the problem at hand by not thinking so hard about it.
Here's what I am doing for fun...
Scribble scarf from the Mason Dixon knitting book.
I LOVE this pattern. It's fun and easy and pretty. This one is being worked in Cascade Kid Seta in Lilac # 19 and Tilli Tomas silk on US 17 needles.
And here is the other scarf. I am using some stash Malabrigo lace held doubled and a newly purchased skein of Cascade Rustic in a gorgeous blue colorway # 13. LOVE it! I am using US 15 needles and plan to block the scarf severely so as to open up the stitches for lightness.
Either one of these scarves would be appropriate for year round use here in the DEEP south as they are light but warm. But I am especially interested in summer use as some places around town have their air conditioners set on what feels like 32 degrees Fahrenheit. And while I could comfortably wear a more wintry scarf it just wouldn't look right, ha,ha.
