Look at how it just hangs there, all full of itself. Little does it know that I will change it. You hear me? I will change you! I was sucked in by the yarn, the quickness, and the idea of it. But when I was done, the bf gave me a look like "what did you just make?". That killed it for me. Then it was a lot longer than I wanted, which sealed the deal. It needs to be reworked. I was going to post this yesterday and then last night, but I was too embarrassed. This is the equivalent of calling your friends after you met a guy at a bar and took him home. How do you tell them that you really thought it was going to work? You know you are thinking, what was she doing, why didn't I stop her?
If you want the pattern, it's pretty easy. Just be careful and don't let it get the best of you.
Row 1 k
Row 2 k1fb, k to last stitch, k1fb
Row 3 knit
Repeat rows 2 and 3 till as wide as you would like (I went to 10 stitches)
Row 1 k1, k2tog, knit to last 3 stitches, ssk, k1
Row 2 k
Repeat rows 1 and 2 till you are back to your original co number.
Switch to thinner yarn and either knit in either garter or garter ridge
Knit for as long as you want and then switch to bulky yarn again.
I'll be reworking this today, and I'll show you all that we were meant to be. It was kismet I tell you.
I was only able to work on the scarf for a bit this morning, so I figured I would show what I got done then. Should I continue as is, or do as Diana suggests and make it a striped scarf? I'm using 19's so does this mean I should go up a needle size? Has anyone else noticed that my "quick" projects are my most annoying?!
Oh, I think I should mention that I only have about 50 yds of the handspun stuff, that doesn't matter right. Right?
