It may in garments, but not with scarfs and that's exactly why my newest project on the needles is a scarf. I'm still a little leery of starting another garment for myself considering how Cherry Bomb came out. A scarf is the perfect transition project for this kind of thing.
I had the perfect scarf yarn hiding away in my stash, 2 skeins of Manos del Uruguay in color 113. Then the search was on to find the perfect scarf pattern. I struck gold when I went through my bookmarked patterns and found My So Called Scarf, which just happened to use 2 skeins of Manos! And what clinched the deal is that I discovered that Stacey used colorway 113 for hers. It was fate!
My So Called Scarf is now approximately 12" long and is lovely. My yarn has more thick and thin areas than the one shown on Stacey's blog, but it has such an interesting look that I'm really liking it! The pattern has enough going on with it that it's not boring, but it's easy to do while watching a movie and also easy to pick up when interrupted.
