On the Needles Friday – Nov. 22, 2013

It’s been a busy knitting week of finishes.  I posted earlier this week the Pothos socks I finished, the drop stitch scarf is off the needles and will hopefully get blocked this weekend.  And here’s a photo of the Ruffled Scarf.  It of course doesn’t look like much hanging on that door knob. 🙂

ruffled scarfI’m trying to decide if I want to steam block the ruffled edge a bit – that should relax it so it’s not quite so kinky.  But it’s just long enough that it goes around your neck and can be held in place with a fancy pin and a little bit of the ends hanging down.  It will be a little spark of color for a plain sweater.  I may just leave it all kinky and wild looking.

My mohair/silk “Fluff” scarf is coming along slowly but surely.  It’s no real conducive to “bus ride knitting.”


Now that its dark when I go to and from work – the lights in the bus that are on are dull and a weird color and trying to see that skinny yarn can be a bit tricky and I keep catching part of the stitch below so this will probably be  a stay at home project.


So, had to find something else to knit on the bus yesterday and pulled another lonely sock out of the sock basket.  I had just cast on and knit a row or two of the second sock when it got put in away.  So a little more progress has been made on these Basket Weave Rib socks – which gives them a little texture.  The foot on these looks really wide but that’s just because I stopped the pattern stitch and didn’t continue it down the top of the foot – but then again, they are sort of wide cause I have a wide foot.

  1. Your Kinky ruffle scarf looks great just the way it is IMHO. With a pretty pin like you said, it will be perfect. I love the color and texture of your socks too.

    • Yes I decided I’m going to leave it kinked – because of the type of yarn I’m not sure it would change the appearance to much with steam blocking and having to hold those edges flat and steam block — that just sounds like way too many bad words would come out of my mouth due to steamed fingers. LOL

  2. I love my Beam N Read light for when it’s too dark to see what I’m doing. When i’m not using it, I even keep spare batteries with it in the storage bag so I don’t get caught in the dark. 🙂

    Such gorgeous things you have going on.

    • I haven’t looked at that particular brand of light – in general LED light is too harsh for my eyes. And I’m not too sure the others on the bus would like it since I knit with my hands more in front of me than down in my lap. LOL

    • It’s a fun one — I’d like one a little longer but there’s 648 stitches in the outermost edges of the ruffle — I don’t now if I could stand to cast on more. LOL But a Yowza hank might be just the thing to use now that I think about it. Hmmmmm maybe I do need a longer one! 🙂
