I recently signed up to do a crochet along of Ziggy Interrupted (Rav link) run by Knit and Escape. I’ve admired this scarf for a while now, and also feel like I should do at least a little crocheting, hence committing to another project. And that’s OK. I have realized that I’m not going to get any serious projects done this year and have come to terms with it.
This is a pretty large scarf and calls for either 5 full skeins of yarn, 29 miniskeins, or some equivalent combination. I don’t want it to be too crazy, but still a little colorful. With this in mind,I have tossed my stash looking for yarn to use, and came up with two options that I cannot choose between.
1) 4 skeins in the blue to purple range and 1 unit of yellow/orange/pink as a pop of color from this selection.
Or 2) two year’s worth of the Madelinetosh shawl club minis from Jimmy Beans
The second option is a lot more colors, but they aren’t wildly variegated and speckled, so I feel like it would be OK. Not sure about the mini-minis. They came as little extras, so I’m throwing them out there. I do also have a few Mad Tosh unicorn tails to fill this out if need be. The first option would be a bit more subdued, but still some nice yarn combinations.
