I had two skeins of Louisa Harding's Kashmir Baby yarn and no idea what to do with it. It feels soft and drapes beautifully, but two skeins of 143 yds each wasn't going to get me anything of great size. I found this pattern in a book of afghan patterns and picked out only the pattern repeat that I wanted to use to create this scarf. The scarf is 32 stitches wide with a 20 row repeat.
Taking a photo of yourself by holding a camera toward a mirror leaves a lot to be desired.
A nice feature of this scarf is that it looks the same from either side. When there is a definite "wrong" side to a garment or afghan, I become a fuss budget trying to keep it arranged so that the right side shows. Much harder to do on a scarf than on an afghan!
I have a sock to finish knitting to complete a pair, and am still working on a surprise project. My good news is that all of this knitting hasn't worsened my eyesight. I did get a new pair of glasses after my eye exam today, just because my other frames were so old, I couldn't remember when I got them.
Since I decapitated myself in the first picture with the scarf, I decided to sit down and use the webcam to take a photo.
I hope everyone has a glorious weekend. If you live in an area with excess warmth, please send some to me in Michigan. We are going to an outdoor party tomorrow night, an Oktoberfest celebration, and this scarf isn't going to be enough to keep me warm. Long johns, a heavy sweater, and gloves will be in order and I will sit close to the campfire. I am a weather wimp.
