Easter Koigu

I stopped by A Mano on Saturday to check out their 40% off Koigu sale. When I got there most of the Koigu selection was gone. HOWEVER, I did manage to purchase three skeins of the above colorway. I'm not a blue person. I almost never wear blue (except aqua). I thought I might use some of my Koigu stash and pair this blue-ish yarn with another color and knit one of those chevron scarves, where you alternate the colorways every two rows.
When I got home I found a pinkish Koigu in my stash. Perfect! An Easter scarf....all pink and blue and pastel! I cast on for the chevron scarf and didn't like it. The pile o' Koigu layed around for a few hours until I decided to just try my go-to "Rhoda" crocheted scarf pattern. I love it! I may gift this creation or I may keep it for myself. Once it's blocked, it should be stunning!

Mmmmmmmmm. Much tastier looking than the hamentaschen, bread pudding, or sweet potato fritters all put together!

Whoa, I don't read blogs for a while and look what happens: I miss you and Koigu.

You're smart. That Chevron can kill a person to finish. Yay for go-to patterns. And Easter egg colors. And Koigu.
