While I was in Winnipeg I visited Ram Yarns (the only good part of that city) and purchased some of this yarn.
I bought some in blue for myself and in a beautiful eucalyptus green colour. I bought the green specifically for my best friend and I want to make her some sort of scarf or wrap type thing with it for X-mas.
They gave me a pattern at the store but I don’t really like it - it’s really, really fussy to knit and not really her style (it looks a lot like a doily).
I would like to knit her something she can wear with clothes (as opposed to outerwear), not too fussy to knit (eg, not a lot of dropped stitches, or loopyness, or other stuff like that, that annoys me and makes my head hurt)
The yarn doesn’t really lend itself to cables at all, and I’m not crazy about how they look.
I guess I’d like something sort of pretty and interesting but not twee or fidgity.
So - any nice patterns you’ve seen? Tried? Knit? Would recommend?
My knitting needles await!
