Sometimes you just fall in love with the novelty of a yarn and just have to have it. I saw this Katia by Triana at Knitorious and wanted to make these lovely ruffly scarves. Fortunately, my wonderful friends Tammie and Fiona had birthdays coming up. Though I already had presents for both of these lovely ladies, I decided they needed birthday lagniappes.
The yarn has at the top a little slit which is the opening used for knitting. When knitted up the yarn makes this awesome ruffled fabric. I discovered the yarn in a half knitted scarf laying on the table at the lys and said, "What's this?" Of course I picked up the scarf and the needle fell out. Whoops!!! Sadly, this is tricky yarn and once you drop a stitch, it is very hard to pick it up again. Sandy, the owner of Knitorious, had to start all over again. It is a good thing Sandy likes me and I bought some yarn from her that day 'cause I was in the dog house on this one.
With my novelty yarn in my knitting bag I began on my lagniappe scarves. I knitted up the scarves and had bonus round presents for two of my favorite people. As you can see from the photo of Tammie in her gift, she looks FABULOUS!!!
