My So Called Scarf

Not sure what I think about My So Called Scarf. I think the confluence of the pattern, the lumpy-bumpy-ness, and the colors make for an explosion of visuals. Sort of reminds me of a strip of landscaping. Or the bottom of an aquarium. Or a rock garden. Not sure. I tried to find the Manos del Uruguay at my LYS and DIY stores, but they didn't have it and my local DIY store had this hand dyed yarn from a farm in Connecticut. I'd never tried anything with this type of yarn... I'm more of a conservative knitter I think, I like uniformity and symmetry I guess. Anyway, here it is, in all of its glory.

Thanks! The yarn is Lumpy

Thanks! The yarn is Lumpy Bumpy Yarn "Slate" from Farmhouse Yarns (http://www.farmhouseyarns.com/) in Connecticut. I bought it at Fancy Tiger in Denver. The Farmhouse Yarns website has a list of retailers at http://farmhouseyarns.com/Vendors.html, but I'm not sure it's complete since it didn't include the place where I found mine.
