Look! I finished a scarf! Maybe now, I can work on giving Vita a mate!
Pattern: My own. Knit on the horizontal with 250 stitches (I wish I did 300).
Yarn: Knitpicks Wool of the Andes in Brown, Mist, Tan and Evergreen (no more than one skein each)
Needles: 47″ US 7 Addis. (I’d have used size 8 or 9s if I’d had a long enough needle)
Size: Somewhere around 5 feet. But it’s thick, so that makes up for length in my mind.
Time: Began Friday night, finished tonight, so, 4 days.
This scarf is for one of my friends. I’m not sure if he’ll like it, but I’ve been told that it’s his colors, so I hope that’ll count. It was super easy and I love the results (I thought about keeping it for a while), but I’m not in any hurry to jump into garter stitch anytime soon. Also, I almost ran out of the green – I was worried that I’d have to undo most of my bind-off and the row before, but I was fine. I had just enough left over for the fringe. Is a fringe too much for a man scarf?
Anyway, it’s one scarf down. One Christmas gift off the list (and a stash-busting one at that. Did I mention that. Yea, I’m trying to do as many gifts as possible via stash-busting). One happy feeling packed away for experiencing in December. I am so on top of things this year. I can handle knitting for about EVERYONE I know. Right?
