New Scarf on a Snowy Day


     Yes, this is Colorado and it snowed on and off all week!  We're on the Front Range, in front of those soaring 14,000 ft. mountains that trap most of the moisture on the other side so you have Aspen and skiing slopes.  But on this side, we have yuccas and cactus and sometimes little snow in the winter.  But we do get dumped on in the Spring and Fall when there's more moisture in the air.  So here it is October, the temperature is 20 degrees and there's piles of snow outside!  Great inspiration for a simple easy scarf called Quick & Thick Scarf!  And creamy white yarn reflects the new snow piled up (I love snow!!!).

New scarf pattern: "Quick & Thick Scarf" 

 It uses a less known version of the Fisherman's Rib stitch to make it quick and thick!  It's fairly simple, requires a couple of skeins of Lion's Wool-Ease Thick & Quick yarn (or another Super Bulky yarn) and #15 needles. You can also find a coupon code in our Ravelry Resistance Knitters group on the thread for the Cowls & Scarves for Asylum Seekers KAL on Friday.  

      I'll be also publishing a new pattern - The Simple Cowl in Ravelry soon! 

 This pattern requires Lion's Heartland (or some other soft worsted) and #9 circular needles.  


      I'm also starting a new KAL on Friday, November 1st called "Cowls and Scarves for Asylum Seekers".  You'll find our KAL in the Ravelry Resistance Knitters group.  Come by,  join and plunge in!  We will be having drawings for prizes!!!

      All Cowls and Scarves are sent by crafters to Suenos Sin Fronteras to be sent to the Asylum Cities they help up in the Northeast.  We have the head of the organization, Laura in our Resistance Knitters group and we give you directions on how to get her personal address to ship items in the Ravelry Resistance Knitters group.

     I'm still reading The Golden Hour and loving it!  I just have small bits of time to read, so this book will be savored.

Come Join Us at Unraveled Wednesday
