Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)

This is my current at-home project. Ever since a previous yarn stash organization, I thought this Trendsetter Joy (Fiber Content: Polyester, Nylon, Yarn Color: F1194; Yarn Weight: 3, DK) would go will with this white fiber fill stuff that I acquired from someone/somewhere – hence, the name Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This) by the Eurythmics. I am pretty sure this will be a cowl and not a scarf, unless I am unable to get to my desired length of six feet.

The white yarn (Fiber Content: Unknown, Yarn Color: Unknown, Yarn Weight: Unknown) – truthfully, I don’t even know if this is yarn – is actually three balls of similar composition, but slightly darkening in color every so gradually. If you look closely at the picture you will see the second color on the left and the white on the right. This yarn(?) is a challenge to work with as the fibers are pretty wild and catch on the needles a lot. Combine that challenge with trying to set the little ribbons free and you can imagine how slow the progress is. I keep trying to focus on knitting, figuring I can go back afterwards and pull the little ribbons out, but I am so anal retentive, I can’t stop myself from trying to do this while I knit.

This project also reminds me very much of Easter and I am hoping to finish by that date, whenever it is.
