I Heart Bozo

Fiber Trends AC-87 by Bev Galeskas
Yarn: Jojoland Harmony lace weight
color HC06 - 880 yds/50 gr
Needles: size 4 bamboo circular
It was a roller coaster while knitting. Every time a new color emerged, I was shocked. That's a lot of color for one shawl. But in the end, I like it. The ball of yarn was only $9 and I used almost all of it, leaving only a little more of the grayish green. That little bit of blue was the only blue in the whole ball.
The pattern is very nice (high praise from an avowed Evelyn Clark fan!). I will definitely knit this pattern again and maybe in a scarf width, too.
I don't have to worry about what in the world to wear with it as I'm mailing this off sometime soon to a woman in England that I've never met. She recently, graciously allowed my daughter to stay at her place when prior plans fell through. It's so lightweight, it will be perfect for airmail!

What a beautiful scarf and what a great giftn for someone that did such a wonderful thing. I'll have to dig mine out and take a picture, it's much paler and pastels, but that's the yarn. Jeesh, guess I didn't know it had 800 yards, I bought 3! LOL Well, just have to knit a really BIG something.
Very, very pretty. You're amazing.
