So how about another finished project while we’re all recovering from our post-Halloween weekend hangover?
Pattern: Here and There Cables Scarf from Scarf Style by Norah Gaughan
Yarn: Mmmmmmalabrigo Merino Worsted in the colorway Geranio. I used about 2.5 skeins.
Needles: Size 9 Knitpicks Options
Modifications: I knit one less repeat than the pattern called for and used a larger needle than called for.
The Verdict: I love it. It took forever and was kindof monotonous towards the end but it’s totally, completely worth it. I can’t wait for it to get cold now that I have this squishy, soft, merino goodness to keep me warm while I wait for the bus!
Ravelry: Here it is on Ravelry
Once I was finished knitting it I decided that it needed a good, steam blocking. The cable pattern was pretty tight together and I wanted a wider scarf:
I love the bright pink color! My mom says it looks like worms – hence the name - but whatever. It’ll look good with my black coat. Also? It matches my roses perfectly:
Btw it’s hard to photograph a very heavy scarf on a skinny rosebush….
Eh. You get the idea. These will probably be the last of the garden pics for the year – it’s supposed to frost overnight so this evening the plan is to rip everything out and get the yard all shut-down for winter.
Oh yeah and I’m designing a cabely hat to go with it… the sketching/swatching/charting part is done and I’m about 75% into the hat:
And I'm out of yarn. Crap. So much for the plan to not buy anymore yarn for awhile!
In other news – I’m on myspace now. I caved to peer pressure. I’m not super active but if you want to be my friend that would be awesome since I only have like 10. Here’s the link to my profile.
