For the longest time, I was a little scared of light weight yarn. The instant gratification of chunky knits were too much of a draw - who needs to use tiny yarn when you can have a beanie finished in a few hours? I learned somewhat quickly that my husband didn’t share my love of chunky knits, and could be a bit iffy on men’s knitwear in general. But I really wanted to make him a scarf. We were living in Brooklyn at the time, and going without layers in January in New York is a recipe for disaster.

So Brooklynite was born!
