I know everyone keeps saying this, but my scarf is perfect! This week we finally got a bit of winter here in Buffalo, NY and just as the heaviest snows were falling, I got my scarf in the mail from Kate. It's the greatest mix of browns and goes with everything. I've worn it every day since Wednesday and I have to say that it has been put through the blustery cold weather test and proven itself warm and toasty.
I think you'll appreciate my conversation with one of my knitting friends:
Me: I just got my scarf! It's great! It's possum!
Doubtful Knitter: Possum? As in scary hillbilly stew possum?
Me: Yeah, well, and merino, but possum... it's amazing.
Doubtful Knitter: Wow, this is really soft and pretty. I'll never look at roadkill the same way again.
Not that I think Kate's yarn came from roadkill possum, but if you see possum in the "ingredients" list, give it a try. Anyone know of any U.S. yarn suppliers that use possum?
