Donna Druchunas:

APRIL 9 12 noon and 7 pm AK time for Ravelry forum chat with Donna who will be knitting along with us

We will be knitting the headband and/or scarf set as pictured below.   Thought would be an easy knit and great to wear at the conference to keep the chill off. You may knit just the headband OR the scarf OR both.


PATTERN is available (onsale right now) on Donna’s Website 
http://sheeptoshawl.com/store/knitting-patterns-donna-dru... 

The yarn we will be using is a Net Loft exclusive dyed in Cordova, called Snow Capped Yarns. You may use Latouche (especially if you are just going to knit the headband. One skein makes two headbands) or if you want a softer yarn, Perry is especially nice for the scarf. You choose your color from the site.  

If you make scarf and headband or just scarf alone YOU WILL NEED TWO SKEINS total.

If you make just one or two headbands YOU WILL NEED ONE SKEIN.

We will be knitting this wonderful cowl with a Merino single ply also from Snowcapped, called Chenega, named after a small village on the other side of Prince William Sound. The original village was destroyed in the 1964 earthquake and there is a new village now called New Chenega where fishermen will often dock up close by when they are fishing “on the other side”

Yarn: Choose a color of CHENEGA for a single ply wool
