When all else fails...
...ask the people on the internet.
Since there's massive snowfall, it seems appropriate to knit. I have some very special wool that I bought on Pender Island when I was there during the summer, but I don't have a lot of it, so I was thinking I'd knit up a slender, lacy scarf. However, it's an odd wool, handspun, and it changes back and forth from really fine to rather thick and back again. A picture of the yarn itself is HERE.
Japanese Lantern Scarf. Not a very good picture, but maybe the best for the slubby-ness of the yarn.
Feather and Fan. Very simple. I approve of simple.
Branching Out. I love this one, but I'm worried that the pattern will get lost due to gauge change of the wool. Also, it should probably be leaf coloured...whether it be green, or autumn colours.
I'm probably going to wind up making a little swatch of each one to see how it works...but I just thought I'd throw this out there. Comments are appreciated. Thanks!
