new yarn + scarf

Saturday, October 27, 2007

I discovered my new favorite yarn last month. Berroco Jasper 100% Merino Yarn. I've been knitting a new brioche stitch Berlin Scarf with this yarn for the past few weeks and I am really liking the colorway...can't go wrong with a self-striping green, turquoise and purple yarn, right? I wish I could make every project with this yarn because it is just so soft and so enjoyable to work with. This is definitely the solution to my "wool is too scratchy" dilemna!

I am cranking away at the hand-sewing the binding on my handkerchief corners quilt. I'm hoping to have it all finished by tonight. Jon and I have had a Wes Anderson film-fest weekend. We saw The Darjeeling Limited in the theatre last night, watched an interview with Wes Anderson on the Charlie Rose Show afterward and are wrapping up the festivities with an afternoon showing of The Royal Tenenbaums (one of my top ten favorite movies ever) this afternoon in our basement while I finish up the binding.


  1. Oooh, can't wait to see your soon to be finished objects!

  2. Beautiful color your new yarn!
    Kind regards,
    Sonnja, from the Netherlands

  3. I also love the Royal Tenenbaums. Did you like The Darjeeling Limited? I haven't seen it yet.
    That color yarn is gorgeous. Those colors are right up my alley. Oh, if I didn't buy all that yarn at Rhinbeck I would hunt for that yarn online right now!
