Seduce: to win over; attract

Yarn seduces me with her siren call. "Pick me! Pick me!" I am hopelessly enchanted by yarn and am delighted by the endless choices.

Finished scarf

I give you the Undulating Waves Scarf:

I am very please with this scarf. I enjoyed the pattern and yes even enjoyed fiddling with the beads! I love the color and of course the soft feel of this yarn. This yarn is one of my favorites.

Here is a close up up the pattern and the color:

It took one month and one week to knit. BUT, I also worked on a socks and dishcloths during that time. I also had to order more beads and had to wait for them. And I'll admit I also started two fingerless gloves. (I guess you can't have too many WIP!)

So I'm not disappointed in how long it took. In fact, I like this scarf so much I'm going to make another one!

For this one I will use the colorway Nancy Ward. It is a lovely woodland blend of browns and greens -- ranging from rusts into dark chocolate and from teal green into evergreen. Right now the colorway is exculsive to Earthfaire. But when I checked their webpage today, I noticed they are out of it. If you like browns and greens, keep checking Earthfaire or ask Ellen when she expects to get more.
