So, I have this new knitting group. It’s pretty f’ing awesome… except for one thing. Everyone at my group always has such cool stuff… and my knitting ADD prevents me from finishing objects at a pace with which I can also brag. It seems like every week someone has something new to show off… except me. It’s really quite a problem and it makes me feel insecure. I’ve contemplated doing the whole “one project at a time” rule, but I’m just not sure if that’s realistic. So, in a bit of a fit of inspiration, I make a scarf. A rather nice scarf, actually:
I liked the scarf though. It’s probably the warmest scarf I own, totally versatile (look at those colors!) and it goes great with both my corduroy and denim jackets. And it was a delight to knit. It’s one of those patterns where you keep say “oh, just two more rows” or “let me get into the purple and then I’ll stop” and then before you know it, you’re done!
Specifics (I want to be lazy and just link to my ravelry page, but not everyone’s on ravelry.)
Yarn: Lamb’s Pride Worsted in Black. Plymouth Boku in a warm, mix of colors
Needles: US 7s, Bamboo
Time Spent Knitting: One weekend (started Friday night, finished Sunday night)
Pattern: See links to Jared’s page above
Love: Tons. It’s definitely not the softest scarf – but it’ll definitely be something I reach for on those windy days.
Regret: I wish I’d bought more of the Boku in that colorway. I wanted to take advantage of the color changing and make a set of winter wear… with maybe some mittens like this. I should know better. Always err on the side of too much yarn. *stupid, stupid, stupid.
Also – super kudos to the first person who can correctly NAME the part of the IU campus where I took these photos. It actually has a name, not just “over there by that one building.”
