We made a stop at the library first and checked out about 30 pounds of picture books. Taking 4 children into a knitting store required some preplanning. The books worked well, as did the promise of a treat for good behavior. Half way through our visit the staff showed us a playroom in the back that was more than a basket of worn out toys tucked into a corner. This was an actual room with french doors, an art table, a cute kitchen set, and some trucks and trains. "Oh thank you!" I said with gleaming eyes. (More time to browse without the rising panic that the kids are beginning to unravel!)
I've already packed it all up for our upcoming move or I'd tell you the name of the yarn. It was wool (with just a little nylon I think) and lovely to work with. I loved the variegated shades of blues and grays. The finished scarf is long enough to double up and loop around the neck. This is just the kind of fun and easy project I needed this season and I can't wait to wear it in Colorado this fall.
our movie there. Thanks Loops!
Another P.S. I posted about the Keep Calm and Carry On mugs back in February. Well I just found these knitting project bags that are along the same lines.
