Just so you don’t think everything I make is pink and has ruffles , todays’ scarf is just the opposite. See it here.
This worked up to be a super soft scarf. Simple stitches, nothing fancy looking, just a great looking yarn with little flecks of color. I kept knitting on this one, so it is longer than most of my scarves…..it took For-Ever!
Speaking of For-Ever………….which is most definitely longer than forever…………. I feel like it has been years since I’ve made anything other than a scarf. I know some knitters enjoy making scarves. Exclusively. But, after this 30 day challenge of mine……..I know I’m not one of those knitters! I’m itching to make something like mittens or a lace shawl. I can’t wait to finish my hot pink socks …..on the 2nd sock, by the way!
I still have a couple more scarves to complete for this months challenge…………then, I’m on to other projects. I have a notebook full of sketches, patterns, yarn snippets and stitch diagrams all waiting o be explored! I have solved the conundrum I was having with the brioche stitch scarf. Doing it the way I read the pattern, it reduced by half a the end, which was going to make it difficult to graft the beginning to the end. I have finished the knitting the way I would write the pattern, and now the stitches match, which will graft so much better! (must find some quiet time to get this step done. I have to concentrate on this, as I don’t do it very often)
I’d better grab a scarf and get busy.
