sarah and david, wishing all the very best to them! and for chuck too! he finished! and in only about thirteen and a half hours, walking in shortly after i posted sunday evening. hmm. yes, fifty miles. incredible. proud of you honey.
hello most fun knit ever! this is the favorite things scarf, not really a pattern, it's more of a recipe. knit in the round, it's a tube that can either be grafted together into a continuous circle and then it's a cowl or finish off the ends, maybe with fringe. i'm LOVING making this, so much it's hard to stop. there are endless inspiring (cute!) charts to choose from and with some graph paper and colored pencils, you could make your own. i found patterns on raverly and in my own library. this seemed like a good way to use up stash, and it was, until i quickly ran out, i don't have very much worsted weight yarn. i placed my first order with knit picks, since needing several colors and wanting to keep cost down. i'm using wool of the andes and it's really lovely!
these are the colors i ordered:
it's going to be super warm soft and cozy especially when wrapped twice around the neck, and since there are so many more favorite things (and more wool now), it's probably going to be the first of many (or at least one more, hee hee). what would you choose for your favorite things scarf cowl?
oh! i found the most beautiful vintage knitting book, written in 1944, it's elizabeth zimmerman style, where patterns are more ideas than an actual step by step. i like chapter 18 : what vocations are available in the knitting field (lots!)
joining with yarn along
