As soon as Dad’s socks were off the needles, I was onto the next project on the gift list. This was something for Dave’s Grandma.
A couple years back, I bought three balls of this yarn:
Lion Bran Ferris Wheel. It’s an acrylic yarn that looks somewhat handspun with long colour runs. I know I had a plan for it when I bought it, but I can’t for the life of me remember what that plan was.
I decided, since it was acrylic, it was a good candidate for use for Grandma’s gift (I don’t have to worry if his Mom throws it in the dryer – because she totally will).
Because of the long colour runs, I decided it would be a perfect candidate for Wingspan.
I wasn’t wrong! The pattern is written for fingering weight yarn, but the Ferris Wheel is worsted. I’m doing the same stitch count, but on 5mm needles. It’s going to be a nice big scarf. The pattern calls for eight triangles, and I’m about halfway through the fourth, and just coming up to the end of the first ball.
If I have enough leftover, I’ll knit up a matching hat. But first, I’ve got to finish this! Back to the needles – Relic is helping keep me on task!
