my mom has asked me to make her a scarf.. i am a newbie and i want to try cables and this scarf is beautiful...so i am makeing the irish hiking scarf. we are going to the LYS in tacoma (http://lambsearfarm.com/index.htm) to pick out yarn for her. whats good yarn? i have only used acrylics (from wal-mart) and recently bought some bunny hop to make a jumper for my dd (so pretty and soft!). so.... :shrug: i'm clueless.. should we just feel it up :oops: or just wing it by color? :cheering: thank you ahead of time
Any worsted weight will work, but if they have merino--give it a feel. It's so soft and lovely to work with.
I couldn't get the site to come up to see what they had.
thanks igrid! you are always so helpful :happydance: ... now i will just have repeat over and over..."worsted...merino..."[size=2]i will not forget[/size][/i]
I agree w/ Ingrid--I made my first "nice" scarf out of merino. I used to love Kool Wool by Lion brand (it's a merino blend) but it's discontinued now....
Good luck w/ your shopping trip--let us know what you pick out!
