Boom! Boom! Pow!

So, I love Lion Brand Mandala yarn and their colorways…heck, I love the NAMES of these colorways…

I knit my sweater in Sphinx.

I have some Gnome here somewhere.  I have Chimera.  I just bought some Unicorn last week.

I have it written down somewhere when I started this Boom! scarf.  I know it was around the beginning of last November because I worked on the scarf and the Strange Brew sweater interchangeably, depending on where I was and what was going on…

The first one … which I worked on all the way to my mom’s in December…and bound off not long after we got back…was made using Lion Brand Mandala in Chimera.  I used a US 8 needle and followed the pattern exactly.

I wore it a week, maybe two, because I finished it before New Year’s…and then, my youngest decided he needed it because it is so cold outside.  He took it.  He has to have it wound around his neck before we leave the house.  Once in the truck, the first thing that comes off is his mittens…and then the scarf…which he refuses to put back on….so, the scarf gets dragged all over the place, but I can’t wear it…

So, I started a new one…using Lion Brand Unicorn…and size US 10 needles…I cast on a new one.  Same pattern…and I am following it exactly.  Just larger needles…and it is going so much faster, for which I am grateful…I just started it this weekend…no pictures posted of it yet…but I will get there.

I am debating knitting a hat to match each of the Boom! scarves.  My old Rikke hat is getting ratty…

I’ll keep you updated…
