One more day of work and then vacation!!! Time to do whatever I want, or nothing at all. What could be better.
In the meantime, last night I couldn’t resist trying out this scarf that I posted the link to yesterday.
I made some changes tho. Instead of worsted weight yarn and the size needle the pattern called for, I’m using two different sock yarns to get the look I want. I also added stitches to the edges and bottom to help stop it from rolling and give it a more finished looking edge. It’s a very simple stitch and goes rather quickly. I had about 4″ done last night but I hadn’t started out with garter stitch on the bottom and it really needed it to stop the curling so ripped it all back out on the way home. So here’s what I’ve got after just a short time knitting on the way home.
I can’t get a good close up of the star stitch but it’s turning out really pretty. I think this scarf could be addicting – I’ve found several other yarn combinations that might look good together for this stitch and I may try it with larger needles and only one strand of yarn and see how it looks a bit more open and lacy.
It’s design wall Monday and there’s not a darn thing on my design wall at all. 😦
