STR Heavyweight Stash Flash

STRHeavyweight, originally uploaded by angeluna1.

And a bit more Yarn Pron for your general amusement. STR heavyweight turns out to be a bit too "thick" for my high arches. Socks made with it won't fit down into my shoes, so these are becoming Chevron Scarves. Except I will use one for a new Cat Bordhi design that was made for this weight.

The beginning of a Chevron Scarf from Last Minute Knitted Gifts in STR Heavyweight, Amber and Moss Agate, sz. 7 needles. I might even use size 8 next time to give it more drape. There is a beautiful Flickr group devoted to these. Completely addictive.

Now that is an excellent idea! I too found that the STR Heavyweight was a bit too thick for sock use, so was wondering. Ditto for the Cherry Tree Hill Glitz which makes superb LOOKING socks but not comfortable ones. Chevron scarves? Good one. Off to look at patterns!

I've decided that my two colors of All Things Heather will become one of these. It should be killer! I love your combination. Very pretty!
