Angel Glitz Ribbed Scarf
I bought some really awesome yarn at Joann's on sale last weekend for $2.10 a skein (regularly $3.99). The skeins only had about 50 yards in them, but for about two bucks you can't pass it up. The yarn is Sensations Angel Glitz in light blue - a mix of acrylic, nylon and wool. It's so soft and fuzzy!! There's this nice silvery cord that runs through the yarn that gives it a nice little sparkle.
When I first picked out the yarn, I thought I was going to make something for my boyfriend's mother (whom I absolutely love!), but everytime I picked up the yarn to work on it, I thought of my high school best friend, so I think that's some sort of sign that this scarf needs her as its owner.
Because the yarn was so fancy schmancy, I just did a 1x1 ribbing to keep it on the plain side, and I think it turned out nicely. The close-up picture is actually more representative of the true color, plus you can see a little of the sparkle in the yarn.
Not to bad for a scarf that cost $6.30!! I love a good bargain.
