My single ply scrap jar (on the right) is filling up with the leftovers from the ADVENTurer wrap.
There’s a large amount, appears to be almost a full skein of green single ply fingering weight in the jar on the left. This morning, as I was thinking of projects for my trip to MO . . projects that require not a lot of attention, minimal counting, something portable that I can put down and pick up many times without having to figure out where I left off and what to do next, I came across Simple Lines. It’s a free pattern and there’s a link to the pdf at the bottom of that page. That is the easiest of scarf patterns and it can be done with no counting, no thinking . . my kind of pattern for knitting while visiting the family.
The one shown on the pattern is a classic, neutral gray. The one I’m thinking of making will be in your face stripes but it will make me smile.
The pattern calls for 200 – 300 grams of light fingering weight yarn. My guess is that the larger hunk of green in my scrap jar is about 75 grams. Each of the 24 mini skeins has about 6 or 7 grams so that’s at least 150 grams.
But then I remembered that the advent kit came with one full skein of TML (color Mint Condition) and I used less than 10 grams of it so there’s at least 90 grams left.
Here’s what it looks like when I used it at the beginning of the ADVENTurer Wrap.
Something to think about. Or, I may go dig out three skeins of Tosh Merino Light in a neutral, classy color but I do believe this is my next Missouri project.
