Yet another Scarf

Triangular scarf

I've still not shown you this little scarf, I made back in early December '09. I dyed this yarn last summer, along with other skeins. One was made into my bloody toes knee high socks. Another into my version of the Baktus scarf. I didn't want to make another pair of socks, but was curious how the colors would present themselves.

This scarf turned out a little small, more like a kerchief, but that's O.K. I like how the colors behaved. It was dyed in two 5og balls. This was another of my projects, where I started out with a shawl in mind, but discovered quickly, that it would not be enough, so changed plans and made another slip stitch thingy. I had just about a foot of yarn left over.

Monika, I love the color and the way the pattern striped the different shades. No one would ever know it wasn't what you started out to make.
Beautiful.....and just in time for Valentine's Day

It's so interesting how you got your dye to do what you wanted it to. I need to learn that trick!

Your scarf is lovely!

Die Socken waren schon geil. Der Schal ist ein echter Hingucker.
