With this yarn and this pattern I think a perfect marriage was achieved! Unfortunately there's no sun outside, as you can see in the next picture, it's one o'clock in the afternoon and it's not even quite light outside. There's snow and rain in the forecast, so I went ahead and took some pictures. It's quite cozy in here. David is studying for his exam, Sam is just dozing, Biko was snoring while watching the street with one eye. But she was happy to model the scarf for me. ;o)
I've used up all but a couple of yards of yarn.. Not enough for fringes, which would have been nice, since the scarf is on the short side.
There you go:
yarn: Cherry Tree Hill Super Glitz: superwash merino wool plied with a strand of glitter, DK- weight, 1 hank of 4 oz./ 325 yds
pattern: from "Exquisite Little Knits" by Iris Schreier (Flying V-scarf). This is one of my favorite patterns. I've made it before and will make it again.
size: 5" X 56"
The only modification I made was to cast on 19 sts instead of the 17 in the book, since I've used thinner yarn.
This is for Judy from Alaska: The pattern I've used for the green scarf (which was frogged) is from the "A Fourth Treasury of Knitting Patterns" by Barbara G. Walker called "hearts of oak". It's quite nice on both sides, ideal for a scarf. I'll be making it for sure, but have to see about having enough yarn for a scarf. It's not on top of my list though. ;o)
