Story: 1 lone ball of silk garden has been haunting me since August, when it failed to fulfill its potential of becoming a purse to carry with my most elegant and loved dress. $11 balls (skeins? What do you call that Noro roll of yarn, blossoms?) of yarn are not seen often in these parts, and I wanted to make the best of it. I also did not want to buy more $11 skeins to make this best. Then, thanks to the joys of knitting blogs, two forces collided: the silk garden mini clapotis and the chevron scarf from LMNG. When my LYS didn’t have the original colorway, I opted for this darker one (good call, I think) and ripped out my “swatch,” knitted from both ends of the original ball. That was very annoying. The knit was fast and fun, the yarn softened after a soak, the whole thing stretched to a respectable scarf length, and I am very very pleased.
