Thanks to an easy kit from Claudia Hand Painted Yarns, I have a new scarf. Well, actually Ellene Warren gets heaps of credit for her easy to accomplish French Scarf. And, being a Francois, I do love my French Scarf.
But, it turns out that for the most part, I wear clothes on my upper body (lower body too, should you be wondering) and thus there is always a layer of something tolerable between me and a potential itch. And by golly, I'll wear the stuff until my skin breaks out in whelps so severe that my demise is on the horizon. That's how much I love this stuff.
Now, please know that if such severe reactions are your personal lot in life, don't go making this scarf out of mohair yarns! Protect your self. The same impact can be had from more skin friendly fibers.
I tried to get a close up of the magic - but it is fuzzy. You'll be patient about that. I'm a yarn artist, not a photographic genius.
As much as I adore this French Scarf, it might be destined for life as a gift. My heart wants to keep it; my soul wants to cherish a friend.
