yarn of transformation, indeed.

I downloaded the pattern for Stephanie Japel's Reclamation Scarf with it being the perfect project to take with me on my trip in May. A nice, easy knit to work away in the airport (along with a good book for the plane ride) and a chance to use the 2 lovely skeins of Alchemy Synchronicity that I rescued from the sale bin at my LYS a few weeks ago. Well, I was eager to try out the pattern (and the yarn) and got a little head start...

ohhhhh! the Synchronicity is just dreeeeeaammmy! So, so lush to work with, it's totally fair that it rings up at between $24 - $30 a skein. The 50% wool, 50% silk blend makes it both soft and shiny, as well as strong with just enough bounce (merino!) I really, really can't get enough -- but at that price I might have enough already.

And look at all the gorgeous colors it comes in! Wish these were all mine....
