AKA Bubble Wrap

Randy is right. The Oceans Waves scarf is a lot of fun to knit. It is so whimsical.

It's hard to get a photo to do it justice. It has a texture that is a lot like bubble wrap. In the colorway that I chose it reminds me of toad skin.

Thanks for the post on that pattern, Randy. I can foresee that I will knit at least a couple of them. I had been looking for a pattern to knit for my God daughter. This is perfect, only for her I will use a light variegation that centers around blues.

I wanted to post this now even though the scarf is only in the beginning stages. My partner and I are only a few days away from moving to Eureka Springs, Arkansas. That is a bit of a gamble on our part bcause of the hard times. Nevertheless we are ready for a change of pace.

During the course of the move and for a time after that I will not have a means to upload pics from my camera.

I have so very much enjoyed the community here. I intend to at least stay up on the MWK news at a local library. The knitting circle here is the best that I have found on the net, thanks to all the savy contributors!

There are so many awesome knitters on MWK whom have been a huge wellspring of inspiration to me.

I am grateful for you all.

What is that yarn? It looks great in this pattern. Also like the shamrocks for St. Paddy's. I hope you stick around with us after you move, and may it be a positive thing for you and yours!

Thank you, Albert. :-)

The yarn that I am using is Lorna's Laces Swirl DK, in the colorway called camouflage. That is a merino wool and silk blend, in seperate strands.

I would love to see this pattern done with the same yarn but in the colorway called Aslan. Those are not the colors that I wear or I would have used that. I may have to make one in Aslan for a friend, at some point, for no real other reason but that I believe it would be truly beautiful.
