Reveal: Double Bump Scarf

Hello everyone!

A few weeks ago I showed you a picture of a mystery item that I was knitting.  Well, here it is...

Yarn color: Red Ochre

I like to call this my waffle scarf because the design reminds me of the classic marks you get from a waffle iron.  However, the appropriate name of this project is Double Bump.  I found this scarf to be a fairly easy project for me, a beginner knitter, and I would HIGHLY recommend it!!  I followed the instructions mostly, and used a chunkier yarn by Deborah Norville, that I purchased from Joanns.  I think it was an acrylic yarn, but I am not sure (I will have to pay more attention next time).  It took two skeins for me to get a finished length of 62.5 inches, and I used size 10.5 knitting needles.  

Overall, I love it! It is so soft! And it feels incredibly nice next to my skin!  I think this scarf would also be a great item to gift to a friend.

My only "con" is that this scarf took me most of the winter to knit!!  But that is my fault really.  I probably could have finished it in a couple of weeks if I had dedicated more of my time to it, but I wasn't pushing myself.  Thankfully, there is still enough cold weather here in Georgia for me to wear it.

Here are some more pics:


So that finishes another knitted item!! Woo Hoo!!

I am still working on my sewing closet makeover, and have started creating the first piece for the room.  Hopefully I can show it to you on Friday--it isn't anything elaborate, but I want to make sure I can finish it by then before I say it will be ready.

I will also be starting another knitted project soon for my one and only sister, who is expecting a baby girl in April!  This project will be a lengthy one that I hope I can finish in time. 

That's all for now!  Take care, and stay warm (or cool, depending).

Stay sew-filled!

Vanessa!! SOOO good to see you back! :) Love that you've started knitting; that color looks GREAT on you!
I also LOVE your curls!! Your hair looked good straight, but as a fellow 'curly' I'm partial to spirals ;)
Can't wait to see what you come up with for your sewing closet, too :)
