Anne's Scarf Done
DIL Anne sent this beautiful 100% Merino yarn in the Christmas box for me to knit her birthday socks. Socks knit from fragile yarn that requires hand washing for a busy working mother? I suggested a scarf instead and she liked that idea.
Two skeins wasn't enough for a tall adult woman scarf, so I ordered two more skeins thereby assuring the scarf would be late for her January 10 birthday.
Now it's done. And assuming I can get out of the driveway, it will go in the mail tomorrow. Without going into a long weather whine, we've been having nasty weather. The driveway is a sheet of ice and the car may be frozen into it.
Once again I used the One-Row Scarf from the Yarn Harlot and doubled the fingering weight yarn. It turned out beautiful.
Pattern: One-Row Scarf by the Yarn Harlot. Knit on 26 stitches. About five inches wide.
Yarn: Artyarn Ultramerino, fingering weight. Using two strands held together.
Needles: US #7.
