After finishing the last project, I was browsing my Ravelry Stash page trying to decide on the next one.
I stopped, once again, and considered the 1.75 skeins of Cascade 220 I have in Christmas Red.
Once again I asked myself, “Why did I buy so much?” and “How big did I think the hat was going to be?”
Once again I asked myself, “What can I knit with that much screaming red yarn?”
But this time, the answer came to me in a flash. The Red Scarf Project! It seems like an obvious choice in hindsight.
This is Easiest Farrow Rib which is basically just a three-stitch Mistake Rib. Super simple.
Here’s something I wish someone had told me when I started spinning: Keep an eye on your vacuum cleaner. Today I flipped it over to pull out a jam, and I was startled at the volume and assortment of fiber clogging the bristles.
I reminisced about many spinning projects gone by as I cut and wrestled it all off the bristle roll. Once I was done, the vacuum’s performance was greatly enhanced.
