Yarn haunts and Fraggle Rock 'n Roll scarf

Now that I have spent an embarrassing amount of money on yarn and snooped around every local yarn shop in Los Angeles, I have decided on a few favorites. I like the stores that are airier, not so packed in and narrow like little yarn labyrinths. Being that close to someone watching and waiting to see if I will buy something makes me nervous and weird and then I buy stuff I don't need and hurry out. I prefer when no one follows you around or makes you feel you've overstayed your visit or overcontemplated the supply of pink wool.

When Shannon and Karman came over on Thursday for Survivor and pizza I gave Karman a big, furry, striped scarf that looks like a Muppet got skinned and fringed. Hence, I call it the Fraggle Rock n' Roll Scarf.

Here she is modeling it on the sofa. Click for big:

Fraggle Rock 'n Roll scarf: Paton's Divine on size 15 needles, with some fun fur stranded in here and there to make stripes. Very plush and soft and raggedy-chic.
