Adventures in planned pooling

If you don't know what planned pooling is yet you soon will as this technique has gone viral, very very fast.  It involves using variegated yarn and planning ahead what goes where so that the colors pool in just the right spots  Some yarns make plaid, some make this mess down here, and if you do it another way you can make stripes.  Of course I had to try it out for myself.  So I did.  And I am happy to say this only took me 2 tries.  Seems like most people have to rip it out and try again at least once so 2 tries isn't half bad, I will take it.  Be on the lookout for new planned pooling scarves and blankets in my shop, coming soon!
