Lettuce Have A Scarf
The latest victim was a beautiful hank of handspun carmel colored somethingorother wool I got in a swap years ago.
Pattern: Lettuce Slide Scarf from Sock Yarn One Skein Wonders
Yarn: Aforementioned handspun in some type of mystery fiber.
Needles: US 5 and US 3
Notes: As you can see (well not really if you don't have the book as the picture of the book's scarf isn't yet up at The Place That Shall Not Be Named), I only knit a ruffle on one side of the scarf. That's kind of because I ran out of yarn. I might have had enough, but knitting that ruffle is a bitch and I didn't feel like getting half way through it only to confirm I didn't have enough yarn.
I couldn't pick up the 330 stitches on the side either. I don't know how on earth they got that many--I could only pick up 250 in the end. But it works. The ruffle is ruffly. That's all that matters, right?
The only other modification I made, other than not using sock yarn, was that I didn't put the slide in. Maybe if I had ruffled the other side I would have.
However, I kind of dig it with a straight side.
It felt good to get this hank out of my stash. Now, onto a million other things I want to knit!
