Good Dog, Carl

Karen Baumer
Yarn: Knitpicks Shimmer
Flower Garden (1 skein)
Needles: US 5
This was a quick and easy project, trying to make the best of a yarn that is really just too bright. I wanted to make a scarf for a friend and she picked out another scarf entirely. It looks like she will be getting two scarves now.
This yarn is 70% alpaca and 30% silk and is nice, other than the color. It makes a very soft, lightweight scarf that is quite warm and comfortable. The yarn was cheap ($4.99) and easy to work with.

Carl looks so happy, Sarina! Love the bright colors, too. When the weather turned cold the other day I got out the beautiful magenta scarf you made for me - just love it, and it looks beautiful against my black coat. Loving the blog again. Cabin looks great!

What fun to hear from another knitting/blogging Juneauite! (and how funny that Dipsy in Austria inadvertently brought us together!)

I really love this scarf, what a cheerful colorway! And Carl looks so happy with it, yay for that! ;)
