Two novelty yarns – one scarf. These yarns have languished in my stash for a good while. The red is an “eyelash” style yarn that never had much body and looked like a mass of fuzzy yarn. No shape, no style. The black is a larger size (thickness) yarn, and almost “too thick” to work up nicely. It also is sparkly. I don’t recall (nor admit to) purchasing either.
I was in the mood for something quick and easy and mindless – tax season is driving me crazy. As usual for me, I started it a few times before I managed something I liked.
So, “whatever-it-is” yearn in red and black, on a Size 10.5″ needle, cast on 12 stitches and garter stitch until done, then bind off loosely. There you go.
The scarf is longer than it looks – Moonbear has a very large neck. It would work very well as a scarf for a coat.
The bear is “Moonbear,” which I made for my husband many “moons” ago, when we were first married. It still occupies a place in our bedroom. One of the eyes was a casualty of a child or dog along the way, but otherwise, it’s in pretty decent shape for being 30 years old. You can’t see the crescent moon on his chest because it is covered by the scarf.
