I am quite sure that I am probably the only knitter in the world - ok, maybe not the world, just the blogging community - who had not knitted this awesome scarf until now. Anyway, it was definately an easy pattern, and the directions were not hard to follow at all. Yes, I did make a few mistakes, but I don't think they affect the pattern enough to really stand out.
I used Bernat Satin yarn in the "snow" colourway (colour 04005), and size 4.5mm bamboo needles. I only used one skein (3.5 oz/100 g, 166 yds), as that was all I had of this. I have 2 more skeins of the Bernat Satin, but they are in different colours. Anyway, the scarf isn't overly long but it is long enough to wrap around your neck under your coat. I liked using this yarn because it was soft to the touch, and knit up fairly quickly.
To the right is a closeup of the work, and if you spot a mistake...please keep it to yourself, LOL!
Since I got this new blog, I haven't been able to figure out how to put the words beside the pictures. For some reason it posts the picture and the words are below it. In the compose section of blogger it looks fine, as well as in the "preview" section, but when it is actually posted...it doesn't seem to work. Maybe if I contact the creator of the template he might be able to tell me what to do...
Anyway, I am currently working on the 2nd sock of one I started a few months ago. I got the first sock completed and then started working on Christmas gifts and the items for my cousin's baby shower, so I didn't get the second one completed. Once I get this sock done, then I am going to knit up a pair using my yarn that I won in Karen's contest.
Off I go to knit for awhile. Happy New Year, and happy knitting!
