In Progress: Saroyan

I’ve just got a quick post for today, and then I’ll probably disappear until the weekend. I’m working on some other things, and I’ll be out for town for the day on Thursday (more about that when I get back!).

When I finished my baby knits, rather than finish up one of the projects I’ve already started, I cast on for a new one. Typical…

It’s Saroyan by Liz Abinante. The leaves along the edge of this are just gorgeous. One of my Dad’s colleagues was wearing this recently and it was so pretty, I had to make one of my own.

It’s made with Stag Ranch Aran in Heliotrope, by Rocky Mountain Dyeworks. The yarn was a Christmas gift and it is lovely. I like that it’s from an independent Canadian company.

Since I only have 340 yards of yarn, I’ll have to do a bit of math to make it work, but the pattern is written so that making changes is really easy.

The two skeins that I have are a slightly different colour, even though they are the same colourway. I know that this happens with hand dyed yarn, so I’m not worried about it, but I’ve been alternating the skeins every two rows to make the entire scarf look more uniform. I’m actually really liking the variegated effect it’s creating!

(My Saroyan is on Ravelry here.)

I’ll be yarn-alonging with Ginny at Small Things tomorrow.

Have a great week!


  1. What a stunning colour that yarn is! Can’t wait to see it all finished.

  2. Beautiful colour yarn. W.I.P looks very pretty.
