Forbes Forest on the Needles
Here is the beginning of my Forbes Forest scarf, designed by Queeen of Cables Kathy Zimmerman.
The yarn is Elsebeth Lavold's Silky Wool, a wool-silk tweed blend, that I received in a gift exchange. As you can see, it's almost exactly the same color as the rubber stitch markers!
I went down to a size US 4 (3.5 mm) needle because this yarn is thinner than the original used in the book. The fabric feels wonderful, and the scarf is about 8" or 9" wide, so I'm not even going to bother measuring the gauge. I have 4 skeins, and will just go until the yarn runs out.
