Wow, I am really impressed. A great looking scarf and your pattern is being published- that is really exciting. I can't wait to get the magazine and give it a try!

I just bought the Schachenmayr Salsa eyelash yarn in Michael's. I definitely paid a lot more than $10 for 5 skeins. I like the purples and know it would knit up into a beautiful scarf or two.

The words "easy to crochet pattern stitches" caught my eye. I am always looking for these types of patterns. This booklet seems to have a large number of them-63 crochet pattern stitches to be exact.

I guess I have never knitted with so more than 2 colors- two complicated for me. I am impressed when someone can create an intricate knitted pattern, using more than one color yarn.

The Rowan DK yarn looks interesting. 250 yards should go pretty far. I usually like using DK yarn for children's knitted or crocheted sweaters and or knitted receiving blankets.

What a cute looking teddy bear afghan. I have just the right yarn to crochet it up. Hopefully this crochet pattern will be easy to follow.
