All's well that ends well

On a happy note, I went to JoAnn's yesterday and exchanged the yarn. Thank goodness I had not gotten very far before finding the separation. So I am about to re-start working on the scarf. Just so you know, they have a beautiful selection of colors to choose from. At least until they are all sold out. AGAIN!

AND please pop over and visit my friend Leslie at MarveLes Art Studios. Leslie is giving away two beautiful pins. Leslie makes such gorgeous things with fiber and fabric. I love to read her blog and watch her build amazing things with thread designs. She also has lots of suggestions on how to use the different feet on your sewing machine.

Enjoy bringing in Spring with a Happy Quilting day!!

I sympathized with your yarn troubles, but the scarf sure was coming along cute. So, are you thinking about winding this skein into a ball before you begin, to see if there might be any other knots?
It's not a practice of mine, either.

I gave my mother a ball of a similar yarn at Christmas. She told me that several of her friends had knit them and she thought she would like to give it a try. A few weeks ago she got started. First she tried 6 stitches like the ball band said. Too skinny. then she tried 9 stitches. Too wide. Now she is happy with 7 stitches. She hasn't knit anything in decades (that I can recall). I am excited for her. She is having fun with it.
