Classic Cables Scarf - Lion Brand Yarn

Masala's picture

I've found a pattern in the Free Knitting Patterns at Lion Brand Yarn. Very nice pattern and I'll start working on in a couple days. . .after I finish the sweater vest that's in my knitting bag!!!!

I went into downtown Denver in an older neighborhood to the Lamb Shoppe, my goal was to find an American made yarn. I found one from the Brown Sheep Company, Inc. located in Mitchell, NE. This one is Lamb's Pride, worsted, 85% wool/15% Mohair, Aubergine, I paid $9.25 per skein, net weight: 4 oz. (113 Grams) 190 yards per skein. I pretty excited to start working with it and when I've got enough of my project, I'll post a picture.

I snagged a couple of skeins

I snagged a couple of skeins of Lamb's Pride out of a donation box at our school cuz the kids all wanted brightly colored acrylic anyway. I have one hat out of it that's way too warm (held the yarn double on a round loom) for anything but freezing weather. I also died a couple of light colored skeins in some camo colors in case we do the knitting hats and scarves for soldiers thing again. It's good yarn.

I remember that yarn...You

I remember that yarn...You did it at Retreat. It will be interesting to see how it knits up.

It will be interesting to see

It will be interesting to see how it turns out Joe. I haven't started anything yet, partly because I've got too many other things on the needles just now (as always, right?) and partly because I didn't hear about any knit projects for the troops this year. That's what I was planning to do with it.

Lamb's Pride is a pretty decent yarn to knit with. I look forward to photos. Hope you enjoy the project.
