One of my new favorite knitting books is "Knitalong" by Larissa Brown. It's a lovely little book, perfect for sitting down and actually reading.
The project from "Knitalong" that I wanted to do before I ever saw the book is the Eden scarf. I love the casual look of this scarf with cascading leaves. On Ravelry I saw a few photos of the scarf done with yarns that feature a slow color change. I had some Mille Colori by Lang in my stash, so I started as soon as I got the book.
I'm hoping that this yarn will work well for the scarf. There is some acrylic in it, so it may not block as nicely as 100% wool. Instructions say that some curling is preferable, so it may be OK.
These colors aren't typical leaf colors; maybe more like colorful Coleus leaves?
