Many a woman loves a bit of sparkle for the upcoming holiday season. Adding a little something new is easy and brings joy to both wearer and observer.
This is the latest craze to go through my favorite LYS. Katia Triana Lux which comes in a variety of shades, this fabulous black/grey/cream combo with gold sparkles is my personal favorite. Basically this is a variety of the popular mesh ruffle yarns with glitz added.
Luckily, I managed to grab a ball before it was all gone. Currently, the staff just says "its on back order" to those of us waiting not so patiently for a new supply.
In less time than it takes to watch a football game, a marvelous swath of festivity can be worked. Folks are working this simple boa scarf with anywhere from five to ten stitches per row and using everything from a size 8 to a 13 needle. The point here is that no new supplies are needed. One ball, any needle, any number of stitches and VOILA! In about two hours a gift is ready.
I love the way that this makes a ruffle when wound about the neckline. It is spiffy whether worn as a traditional scarf or twirled and tucked like a huge collar.
With something this wonderful, and a whole cadre of knitters & crocheters waiting impatiently, I sure hope that back order is already shipped!
