    Comments about WESTKNITS Spectra:

    I love my spectra scarf and got lots of compliments on it at Vogue Knitting Live in NYC. It was so much fun to make. Learning the short rows was a small challenge at first but then I got used to it and it was just fun to watch the variegated yarn change with each wedge--I didn't want to stop knitting it! As I said above, I think it is more decorative than it is warm, but it is wool, so there is warmth when you wear it.
