false start...

Since I can't take AB^3 on the bus with me, I needed something to occupy my time this morning. I probably should have thought about this earlier...With about 5 minutes to spare before I had to leave, I decide to take the easy route and grabbed the Froth Scarf gift kit I got when I renewed my Rowan membership. It seamed like the perfect choice a the time, but now I'm starting to wonder.

When I first got the kit in the mail, I was glad that I had gotten black since it goes with everything. Unfortunately, now that I've knit a few pattern repeats, I'm not so sure. Between the color and the yarn's haze, the stitch pattern doesn't show up at all. If I continue, I imagine I will end up with something that looks like a black, mohair scarf that has been infested with moths. So, I'm going to call this one off.

But, what should I do with the 2 skeins of Kidsilk Haze?

How heavy is the yarn? Maybe it would look cool as another clapotis?

Kidsilk Haze is very lightweight, so Clapotis would be out...However, i would like to make another Clapotis once it get cooler.

Ah. There were a bunch of lace weight scarf patterns in vogue knitting a few months ago. Maybe one of those?
