Oh, plied is a nice change for that sort of yarn! It's a lovely scarf.


Wow! Needles that warm as you knit. I'm drooling. I'll have to look in to getting some of those.

Thanks for sharing.

Knit on!


WOW!!! That is awesome! Love the scarf!


I'm Hollering.
We must resume our Thursday knit outs, just let me know the time and the place and I'll be there. You'll have to stop by my new place so you can get some practice on my wheel.

That scarf looks so soft. It must've been so hard to give away.

BTW. The pic on my blog was taken during Will's birthday party. He was DJing at this little lounge at the TIME Hotel on 47th street. It's a nice little after work spot.


I think you're right that plies on the yarn make a difference. While I love the soft hand of Malabrigo, it is single-ply yarn and it pills terribly. I made a scarf out of the Sheep Shop Yarn(1) and love it and only used 2 skeins for the scarf (but I don't like them terribly long either).
