I realized that I’ve been making a lot of scarves lately, and I was thinking about why I’m so frequently drawn to that particular purpose for a skein of yarn.  They’re easy, and quick, and useful–all reasons that I’m sure are part of my decision process.  But I also really really like to see how a variegated skein of yarn is going to play out as it’s knitted or crocheted into a shape.  And scarves are a nice flat surface, so they don’t distract from the colors and patterns of the yarn.  They’re a perfect showpiece for the artistry of a handspun or hand-dyed skein.

Now I just need to work on my spinning skills.
