screaming mandrake

One of the options for the HPKCHC Herbology lesson this month was to make something that screams as loudly as a baby mandrake.

This chroma yarn from Knit Picks seemed like the perfect thing! It’s mega pink, which screams on its own but is also screamingly outside of my personal color comfort zone. It’s actually a one-off colorway that was left over or something, which means I had gotten it on super-duper clearance sale. I think I must have been subconsciously inspired by Isobel when I bought this color.

This project is part of my de-stash project and I am so pleased with how it turned out. It’s soft, lovely, comfortable (I wore it yesterday for the first time), and: two fewer skeins of yarn in my to-be-knit pile!

This knitting pattern was easy to use and really works well with this yarn. It’s got enough of a pattern to be interesting and give the scarf a nice drape, but it’s simple enough that the beauty of the color variegation shows really nicely.
