Sweet Sassy Molassy

I actually finished something!

It's the simple drop-stitch scarf out of the $25-marked-down-to-$5 silk ribbon yarn I bought with Chris when we went to go check out the Suckery Spinnery in Frenchtown. I shouldn't be so mean, it was an OK yarn store. Nothing I'd make the trip out to visit again though.

Since it was only 100 yards, it's not that long of a scarf.

More of a scarflette.

Or maybe an ascot of sorts.


The stats:

Pattern: My "own" using stitch design 151 from The Book of Knitting and Crochet.

Yarn: The aforementioned mystery $5 silk ribbon.

Needles: US7

Notes: Meh, it's not my finest work. I somehow managed to add and then drop a few stitches in the middle. So it kind of bottlenecks a bit. The rose buttons--while I like them and think they add a nice touch repeating the crinkly-ness of the silk ribbon yarn, are a little too big for the drop stitch holes. But with a little work, they get on there.

I'm not much of a scarf person. This one might go to Mom.

But it was a nice mindless little knit while I figure out what I want to knit next.


Oh yeah, it's so pretty it makes me burp!!!

Cowl. It's a cowl. Say it with confidence and they will believe. But it won't take any magic at all to get them to agree it's a lovely colour and a cute knit with little rose buttons. Squee!

I'm usually not a fan of pink, but I really like this. It's very bright, which is always a plus, and the softer pink roses make it glow even more. Coolness.

Scarflette, neckwarmer, ascot, cowl - whatever it is, it's purty! Even if it does make you burp like a man.
