Play Misty For Me

I'm finally starting my scarf. I was gonna try to do Backyard Leaves or Forbes Forest, but my brain cannot handle a chart right now. My attention span is too short....maybe after all the holiday madness! So it's Misty Garden for me. I couldn't find the Jo Sharp Mohair, so I'm going with this lovely Chimere By Anny Blatt.

    Hey Suzie! Mmm, I love those wavy rows! I frogged and restarted my Backyard Leaves last night and made it through one full repeat... If you can avoid going blind reading the chart, it's really quite easy!

    You're going to love this pattern. I do it in the car and anywhere I have to wait - it's so easy, yet interesting. Almost finished with mine - it goes fast.

    I can't wait to start. There are actually so many scarves I want to try...In the midst of trying to plow through my gift knitting I figured I'd go for one that was relatively uncomplicated. I am looking forward to trying Leaves and Forest soon as I can after the New Year. I just love the way they look!

    Suzie - I am thinking about Misty - how is the yarn you have chosen working out for you?

    I like it--but I it's definitely a different texture than the Mohair. I think the Jo Sharp yarn is smoother. One strand of this Anny Blatt is more boucle-like, so it's taken some getting used to--my needles kept getting stuck in the little loops. But I'm into a nice groove now--I'll post a pic when I have a few more inches done.
