I think Phyllis really appreciates three thing in knitting: 1) fun fur, 2) sale yarn, and 3) free patterns. I'm going to combine all three! I picked up this boucle yarn at Big Lots when I first learned to knit. (I don't know if you can see that the price is $0.79.) Starting this Thursday (or Friday if I am forced to TiVo) I'm going to knit the scarf pattern on the band.
Good Luck, everyone.
