I read about Pioneer on A Verb for Keeping Warm's blog, then read a glorious write up by Clara Parks on her excellent and informative weekly, Knitter's Review.
I ordered a parcel, which arrived quickly and beautifully presented:
I chose the color, Bandana, a Madder-dyed shade of amazing depth.
The yarn base was even better than I'd anticipated!
I began to knit this pattern, something that my daughter Haley had worked out for me in a bulkier merino but set aside as not quite the right fit.
And before I knew it, I'd ordered two more skeins to make this 80+ inch scarf
that I will love for a very long time.
The corrugation and color made me think of a tin roof - my next one will be wider and in a marvelous shade of grey or grey blue, I think.
I would highly recommend this amazing worsted weight yarn for any project,
large or small.
Take a peek on Ravelry to see what others have made - you will be so inspired.
