I'm trying to knit through all my bulky yarns this year. They take up so much room in the stash, and even though when I buy them I think I will have no problem using them up, actually I find it really tricky to find patterns I like in bulkier yarns. Here is a scarf I knit up in 2 days way back in January, and then let sit till spring because I didn't want to knit in the ends.
This is the HandMaiden Texture2 Scarf. I first saw this kit knit up by the Yarn Harlot and then I wanted my own so very badly. The yarn comes with two scarf patterns, I tried one, but couldn't figure out the vague instructions so I tried the other pattern and had the same problem. Well really how hard is it to knit a simple scarf so I just went with garter stitch.
But, really I don't like it to much, it just looks too sloppy for me. Kaelen says it's the ugliest thing she's ever seen, so no hope of passing it down to her. I will have to figure out what Fiona thinks of it I guess :-(
I did get the Spring Rowan recently, not much caught my eye, but isn't this pretty. Looks so sweet and delicate.
And I like this one, too.
Now I want to get my hands on the Spring Vogue, there are some really pretty patterns in the preview.
I love all the white lacy knits.
