i finally finished the scarf i made for my dad for his birthday (a bit late but not terribly bad). i think i like it. the pattern was simple and fairly meditative to make. at least, 170 stitches a row of garter feels mediative to me. the yarn i used is not the brand that was suggested (because the shop i stopped in when i wanted to start the project didn’t carry it) but it is nice and soft and i think the colors turned out fairly well. i would definitely enjoy picking out yarns for this scarf again now that i have seen exactly how it looks and feels when it knits up. i guess that is how i am because i often feel that way when i complete a knitting project.
ok, less chatter more images.
i have a bit of each yarn left over and i am thinking i will try to whip up a hat for the bean. seriously, how cute would it be if bean and his gramps had matchy matchy hat and scarf! too cute. i better go hit up ravelry for a cute hat pattern. anyone have a suggestion?
