Smarties Scarf

Our wonderful newsletter editor shares her new fiber project with us, she says, "I knit this scarf (Fickle Fingers Scarf by Gayle Roehm) for my sister. The yarn is sugarcane, which has loads of drape, just like angora, but is nowhere near as light or warm."

Kathy adds, "I couldn't figure out why I was attracted to the colors, two different colorways which I alternated. Pastels don't usually catch my eye, but there was something comforting about these.

Then it hit me. They're the colors of Smarties!

Smart and sweet. Just like my sister."
