Debbie Bliss Roma, a wool and alpaca blend that is so soft, so luxerious and warm that I instantly fell in love. And I fell in more in love with the finished project. I'm talking warm, soft, squishy. Have I said that I'm in love, because I am! This yarn was the yarn listed in the pattern and I decided to go with it because it called for a super chunky yarn and I wanted something a little luxurious, something I could wear to work or around the town and not just under my coat. A statement piece if you will, and I am so glad I decided to splurge on this yarn. Worth every penny.
If you've looked at the designer's picture, you'll notice I did not include pom poms on my scarf. I do love the look they lend to the piece, but I've never made pom poms and I didn't think a yarn like this was the type of yarn to learn with. It's just too nice so I decided to skip the pom poms.
This was a joy to work up and is definitely my favourite scarf. I know I've said that about others before, but I don't own a thing like this and I think I'll be hard pressed to find another piece quite as lovely as my claret squishy scarf.
Thoughts on the new look of my blog? I'd love to hear from you in the comments below.
