This is the final knitted Christmas gift: a scarf for my friend, Becca. I’m totally in love with this scarf. I want to knit myself one this very second. It was really fun to knit and I think Becca will really like it!
Here is a better close up of the pattern. It was knit from side to side on 17s so it knit up super fast.
Here it is in action. I love how it bends left and right.
And here is a close up. It’s two different colors of the same yarn I bought at Michaels a few years ago. I remember that it’s alapaca, but I don’t have any other information. It’s a blue color and a teal color with this brown mixed in. I’ve been planning on using them together for sometime now, but didn’t find the right project for it until now. I am planning on posting the pattern in the next few days.
In sweater news- I went to buy needles for the saddle shoulder aran I’m making for Ben and realized that eventhough I want to knit the sweater on 10s I swatched on 10 1/2s. Silly me! So, tonight I will reswatch. I definitely don’t liket he size 8 swatch I did, so I think I’ll just rip that one out and re knit it on 10s. I did buy 32″ Addi Turbos which I didn’t even realize Windsor Button had! Also it was a very hard trip for me because they have Rowan Polar at 20% off. I’m moving and therefore not allowed to buy yarn or anything else you have to pack, but if you’re in Boston you should stop by and hit the 20% bin! I wish I hadn’t seen it.
