Brooke’s Column of Leaves Knitted Scarf
I found this pattern via Ravelry. I was looking for something to make with my bison-wool blend yarn. I was looking for something lacy but not too holey and snag-able. More specifically, I needed a diminutive pattern that would make the small amount of lace-weight yarn I had purchased this summer
for almost twenty dollars in a moment of fiber-fair induced irrationality go further.
So, this is Saturday and I am off work. I can sit on my couch, in my relatively clean house (thank you, husband), drink tea, and knit the scarf. I’m planning to listen to Vivaldi or Bach, and feel a sense of orderliness as I work row-by-row.
The designer says the pattern is easy to learn, but I find it complex enough that I need to refer back to it for each row.
Life is so busy sometimes, and it’s nice to take a little time to just sit down and do something that allows one’s mind to wander but not too far.
