I 'lost' my original scarf last year and really miss it. The arrival of a truly lovely colourway (Wildfire) in my Lion Brand stash motivated me to knit another. It's not worked as well as the original, mainly due to the slightly thicker yarn used for the lattice work. This was done in Chilli, a Homespun colour I've had in the stash cupboard since last year. Is Lion Brand making the yarn thinner? Seems to me that the dratted Credit Crunch is affecting everything.
