The Unveiling

So it would appear that I'm about a month late with this post. I'm a bit embarrassed since I don't even have 5 posts here yet. But what can I say, I'm a sporadic blogger and a sporadic knitter. That doesn't bode well for future knitting epiphanies, does it... In any event, I now present to you my finished scarf.

Navy Blue Scarf

Navy Blue Knit Scarf
December 2006
  • Type: knit
  • Stitch/Pattern: stockinette stitch w/eyelet rows for ribbon (garter stitch border)
  • Needle: size 8
  • Yarn: Lion Brand "Wool-Ease" (Navy)
This is a good cold-but-not-bitterly-cold winter scarf. It's keeps me quite warm, but it's surprisingly thin and light, thanks to some help from an iron. (Which reminds me, I will need to write about my first forays in blocking at some point.) The best part--NO MORE CURLING!! I'm also happy with my color choice. Navy blue is a little bit of a departure for me. I usually go for lighter colors when knitting, but I've had an idea in my head for lace-up navy blue arm/wristwarmers for a while, and this was the companion scarf to go with it. I haven't even figured out how I'm going to make the wrist-warmers or exactly what I want them to look like, so the companion item ended up coming first. Funny how things turn out. (Not really.)
