When I said before that I finished the Ruffles scarf on Valentine’s Day, I wasn’t completely honest. I finished knitting the scarf then. I still had various ends to weave in–the yarn I used was a very random acquisition from Stitches years before, from a “$2/ounce” bin, and was a complete mystery yarn. There wasn’t even a tag giving the huge bundle’s weight–the woman who worked that booth and I guesstimated and she charged me $10 for it. It turned out to have a load of slubs and super-thin spots, so over the years, as I tried to make new thing after new thing out of it, it got broken up into about a thousand balls.
I’ve loved this yarn forever: It is lusciously soft. So it’s nice that I put it into a pattern that will sit against my sensitive neck.
- Ruffles from Scarf Style
- Size 3 needles (I don’t really remember, but I know they were either 2 or 3)
- Knit until I had no more yarn left. Can wrap around my neck twice and still hang prety low.
- Finished knitting while in the hospital with mom after her emergency appendectomy (got loads of compliments from hospital staff!)
- Finally sewed in ends in my finishing frenzy this weekend.
