Do you love to shop? I do 🙂
I’m sure that I must have inherited a shopping gene – or several!
Like most people, I love a bargain so when I saw some pretty yarn on sale a while back, I stocked up.
I chose a few different kinds, but all of them are the type of yarn that looks best in a simple item, like a shawl or a scarf, so that the color and texture of the yarn can take center stage.
I’d seen ribbon yarn previously, but hadn’t used it. When I found this gorgeous “rainbow” of pink, coral, yellow, lime, teal, indigo, purple, and magenta, I knew it was time to try it.
I decided to make a belt, but of course it would also be great as a drapey scarf.
The photo doesn’t capture the beauty of the colors. This is not your ordinary rainbow – it’s absolutely striking! I’ve discovered that ribbon yarn makes an especially wonderful fringe, too!
I love the fact that this can be worn almost year-round. The yarn is silky and light-weight enough for all but the hottest summer days.
Measurements for the scarf/belt are: 85” long (including the fringe), and 3” wide.
It’s made with: Lion “Incredible” Ribbon Yarn.
Perfect name – the colors are “incredible”!
