I casted on for Airy Scarf from Last-Minute Knitted Gifts by Joelle Hoverson on Friday over the holiday. I had picked up some Crystal Palace Kid Merino from morethanyarn.com a few weeks ago and I thought it would be the perfect gift. I had initially thought of making the Gossamer Shell Scarf from One Skein Wonders for this recipient, but I changed my mind when I saw this pattern. I have two skeins of this Crystal Palace Kid Merino, and the pattern states that one skein makes two scarves, so I may be making more Airy Scarves, a Gossamer Shell Scarf, or something else afterward. A solid color would be better to use for this pattern, but I like the flowing pattern and varied colors. I could use one needle size smaller (US10) instead of the 10 1/2 that I'm using, but I wanted to use Bamboo's and I do not have any in a size 10.
