Westport Yarns is hosting a Prism Yarns Trunk Show this week .When it arrived (all 6 boxes), I had the pleasure of unpacking all the yarn. What a labor of love! I’ve been a fan of Prism yarns for years. All I could think was, “I love what I do”.
I fell in love with the colorway Peacock.
The perfect combination of my favorite colors: purple and teal.
One of the samples Laura Bryant sent was for was the Stuff Ruffled scarf. She had it worked up in two colors, Mink and Woodlands. I thought I would knit my ruffled scarf as a combination of Periwinkle/Peacock. I worked the long-tail cast on using both yarns. The reason I did that was twofold. 1. I wouldn’t have to estimate the length of the yarn for the cast on. 2. It would make the cast on represent both colors in the scarf. I’m very happy with the result.
I also revisited Intentional Patterning with hand painted yarns from the class I took with Laura at Stitches East. I had started this scarf with Merino Mia (colorway is Harvest). It is great fun.
