Now I know the name of this blog doesn't sound promising, and I must tell you that the beginning of this scarf was less than auspicious.
I started out knitting a totally different scarf, but my hubby and my sister both pointed out that the yarn colors looked washed out, even though they were the blue and green shades Seyram wanted. I didn't know what to do now.
I started out slowly, and the yarn seemed a little resistant. But I kept going because I didn't want to undo another project. The Crystal Palace Merino Stripes yarn is nice, but it's really trying to frog and re-wind for another project. I finally finished the scarf in late December and after blocking, it came to over 7 feet long and about 8inches wide. I asked Seyram to send me some pictures of her wearing the scarf and I am quite pleased to say that it looks warm and thick. I hope she likes it though. :)
