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).
