The Ribbon Scarf

Here is a closer look at that ribbon scarf on Monday's design wall. This ribbon was so slippery that when I tried to wind it on the yarn ball winder and I removed my hand from the top of the ball the ribbon just exploded into a mushroom. Once I got it contained in a zip lock baggie I tried to knit it up into a scarf. O my. Once again this yarn was a PITA and twisted and knotted. So this was a really good solution because I could cut this silly stuff if needed and I ended up doing so several times. I added bits and pieces of other yarns and fibers to add a bit of texture and interest. The scarf turned out very soft and drapey. It may become a Christmas present for someone.
