I have a ton of Cascade 220 Fingering weight from a frogged project that I started earlier this year and then lost interest in. I’ve been searching for a project to use it in and hadn’t found anything I really liked or found things that I like but didn’t have the needles for and was too lazy to either go get them or order them and have them delivered to the house…now that’s pretty lazy.
Today I was working on Gnarled Oak Cardigan, weaving in the ends, and I lost interest. Let’s face it, weaving in ends is pretty boring and best done while watching a really good movie or during your favorite tv shows marathon. But since there was none of that going on and I didn’t feel like doing chores, I surfed Ravelry instead.

In the process of just surfing around I came across Dream Stripes by Cailliau Berangere. This won’t use up near all of the Cascade 220 Fingering I have but It will give me a nice project to work on and it’s cute! Really cute with the lace edging. So cast on I did.
I’m looking forward to this project. It’ll be a good size to wear as a scarf with my winter coat and around my office. My office gets really cold in the winter since I have huge southern facing windows and when the wind blows, I can hear it whistling around the window panes…not properly sealed doesn’t begin to cover it. Having something warm around my neck helps me stay toasty all day.
