I ordered a huge stash of yarn from knitpicks.com, and (of course) it is set to arrive the day after I leave on a trip to Hawaii! I needed a project for the plane (over 13 hours in the air!), so I decided to try to design a hat and scarf using up the Forest Green Heather Wool-Ease Yarn that has been sitting in my cupboard.
So now I'm swatching! Varying the numbers of yarn overs dropped, and the number of rows in between each dropped row.
