mOrE sTaSh BuStiNg

More stash busting going on.. omg there is still more yarn.. right now I'm working on Natty by Wendy Bernard.. again I'm using 2 strands of paton's classic wool merino.. I really like how the hat looks and I like how the scarf looks too... but the scarf doesn't have the drape factor I usually like.. I think from all the cables it's a bit stiff.. so... I stopped working on it yesterday trying to decide if I want to continue or not.. I think it would have been better on a larger needle... I'm still thinking about it.. I might rip it out and start again on larger needles... this is a reversible pattern and u make cables in on the purl side .. that's a first for me.. and .. I actually find it easier to manage the stitches during the twist.. they don't pull as much.. go figure.. 0.0
I'm off to the grocery store... knitters have to eat too..!!

I love the colors. They really beautiful and compliment each other. I really should start knitting with 2 strands of yarn. It's a really good stash busting method. I used to do it, why did I stop??
Anywho, great job as usual!
