If you recall, a few weeks ago I found an inspirational skein of silk yarn while shopping at In Stitches, a magical yarn store in the Boston area. The yarn is Colinette Tao colorway marble 88 and is pearly white with small regions dyed in colors which reminded me of springtime cherry blossoms. As winter is drawing to a close, I was eager to switch away from knitting with heavy warm wool and into a lighter yarn, and so it was with great glee that I carried home my first springtime project-to-be. At home I struggled over what to do with just one skein and at last turned to my bible, the Vogue Stitchionary. The Stitchionary comes in multiple volumes (I- basic knit/purl/lace, II- cable, III- color) and is a valuable resource for quick pattern adjustments (don't like a particular cable...pick another and substitute) and for a never-ending supply of scarf patterns. Almost any pattern in the stitchionary can be easily adapted to a scarf. This pattern is #154 and is called "Victorian Ferns."
