This is one of my favorite stashed yarns. I think it is the color that I really like the best. There is just something soothing about the colors to me. The yarn is Fleece Artist Blue Face Leicester Aran. It is 100% wool and the skein weighs in at a hefty 250 grams. It is about 375 meters. The color is called Cloud Burst.
I've got two skeins of this color stashed away. When I bought it, there were only two skeins available or I probably would have bought more. I like the colors that much. I really don't know what I would do with more... I don't really like heavy wool sweaters. But I've got two skeins and that should be plenty to work with. There is no point in hording yarn or being greedy. Well to be honest, I don't really believe that; I'm just making the best of the situation at hand.
Two skeins will be enough to make a nice scarf and maybe a hat though. I haven't picked a pattern yet. Although I'm leaning to the Manitou Passage Scarf from Jen over at 144 Inches of I-Cord. I like the idea of the reversible cables so that the back and front are the same. I like the idea of a two sided scarf. I'll take a looks through my stitch dictionary before deciding though. Anyone have a favorite scarf pattern that looks the same on both sides?
