February is for Fibonacci

I've been working diligently on the Fusion Cardigan. The waist shaping is done, and I'll have more to say about that in a later post. The problem? I'm at the point where all I'm doing is going round and round in a colour (or perhaps I should say "non-colour") called Glacier. Now, don't misunderstand. I love Glacier, or I wouldn't have chosen it as the main colour for this garment, and I especially love the way it sets off the colourwork border. It's just that endless Glacier in early February can get to a knitter. So, yesterday evening, whilst everyone else in the family was out having fun, I had my own little party in my living room, complete with "Death Comes to Pemberley", courtesy of Netflix, Lana Grossa's sock yarn in a colourway called "Aloha", and my pattern for the Fibonacci Neckerchief.



My camera and computer aren't doing justice to the brightness and liveliness of this colourway. It's a citrusy (is that a word?) colour explosion--the perfect cure for a morning when snow is slowly sifting down (yet again) from a grey sky.

  1. "Aloha" is a perfect name for that yarn color! It makes me happy just staring at it.

    1. Yes. It's the fibre version of an anti-depressant!

  2. Well I may be becoming a pest with my question but I can't seem to get the hang of making a comment. What size needle did you use for this scarf as I have bought the same yarn and want to make it? I really enjoy reading your posts and this is the first of your patterns I'm trying.

    1. I used a US # 4/ 3.5mm. Hope that helps.
