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.

Color: #144

Needles: US #7.

Love that color! How many stitches wide is this one? I've been doing 34 and yours looks narrower than that; is it?

It is a beautiful scarf which Anne should enjoy.

Be careful on the ice! Last week we also had an ice storm and I hope the last for awhile.

Beautiful scarf! When you doubled the yarn, did you try to match up the colors or was it serendipitous the whole way?
