I bought some lovely golden-orange yarn. I made a 10,000 Blessings Scarf with two skeins. Wanted something in reversible cables for the other two skeins, so I experimented. Then, when I finished one skein, it was a nice length for a short neck warmer, so I stopped. I’m thinking something with yarn-overs for the fourth skein…
