Feb 2, 2018Still catching up with the backlog of finished knitting. Finished these a couple weeks ago. Like Rainy’s Mish-Mash Gloves, these started from a fingerless gauntlet pattern in Sally Melville’s The Knitting Experience Book 2: The Purl Stitch. I stayed closer to the original pattern this time, only adding a couple of stripes. Impressively, I also managed to stay close to the recommended gauge. How? Went a size up on the needles.

Took me less than a week. I like that. On the other hand, I established for certain that when I knit fast my gauge loosens up. The hat fits looser than it should. I like that less. On the other other hand, I already wear it most of the time. It feels nice.

I made a scarf for a friend. Nothing fancy, though the choice of soft, cozy Tosh Merino convinced her otherwise. She requested a long and skinny scarf. The finished product measures just over six feet long and four - wait, let me measure: three - inches wide. I had enough yarn to go longer, but if she’s happy I’m happy.
Aug 15, 2005This started out as the “maximum scarf” from the Knit Stitch book, but I got bored and went for a modified version of “Joel’s Scarf” instead. This is sport weight yarn, 60 stitch cast on, and and only 3 colors instead of 7. It has turned out to be my most popular scarf.
