Sometime in September, a friend sent me her yarn because she was cleaning out. Yippee!! This friend, Madeline, is a classy girl. She does interior design work, and she has something that some of us don't have. Some of us have better luck closing our eyes before we reach into the closet for our Sunday attire, rather than trying to match color, style or texture. Madeline has style. I'm usually afraid to go beyond black, gray, dark blue or (maybe) green. Patterns and frills in clothing are dangerous territory. But when Madeline buys yarn, she buys fun stuff, as you'll see.
I'm starting another scarf, this time red. This is a bumpy, deep red yarn. I like to put my yarn in a ziplock bag, and just let the end string out of a corner. It keeps your yarn from running away from you under the couch.
