If wishes were yarn . . .

I'd have another couple of skeins of the Merino in my stash so I could actually make this entrelac scarf.

First few tiers of an interlac scarf

As always, my picture taking does not do the project justice. Not that it's really a project since I don't have enough yarn to finish it and it's highly unlikely that I will get anymore of it since it is hand dyed.

But anyway . . . When I first got Scarf Style by Pam Allen, I was a little put off by the entrelac scarf. It just looked way too complicated - sort of like making the heel for a pair of socks did. So when I finished the socks and I was done playing on the computer, I thought I might just give the instructions a try with the little bit of Merino I had left over to see if I could get the hang of it.

Obviously, I did. And just like the socks, this pattern is so easy I can almost do it in my sleep. So now I'm left wishing I had more yarn so I could make the scarf for me. I've been such a good girl making presents for everyone else, I deserve a pretty scarf. Really, I do. Just ask me.

I guess I will just have to find some other yarn, in sufficient quantity once I figure out what that is, to make this pretty for myself.

Lady Eleanor looks super spiffy in any Noro yarn. Silk Garden would be fabulous. I'm doing mine in Kureyon, but just cause I didn't already have enough Silk Garden.

Thanks for the advice. I'll dig around online to see what I can find. I'm stuck in a yarn deprived pothole of civilization so all my yarn shopping has to happen online.
