Twin Rib Scarf As a Gift


Here it is, my latest project! I'm making a twin rib scarf for someone at my school who is moving on this summer to a different job (in a cold climate!). Every project has to be a new challenge, so I'm trying out the two-row requirements of the twin rib pattern. (Width is multiples of 6 [24 for me], Row 1 is K3 P3 and Row 2 is K1 P1 and repeat; I'm using #10 needles.). It's not hard, but I am using my row counter to keep on top of the rows I'm doing so I know where I'm at. The yarn--Pastaza from Cascade Yarns in a burgundy color (048). It's more than worsted but not quite bulky, and the texture of this scarf is spongey! This yarn is great because it's soft, woolly, and NOT itchy. (It's llama and wool, 50/50.)

Wow Stacie! It seems that every few days I check your blog and you have 3-4 new projects completed. How do you do it?

BTW - love the ribbed scarf. I've never seen one with with different ribbing on each side. Very creative. Looks great, as usual!

Well, Goldendomer,
It's called a-d-d-i-c-t-i-o-n. ;^)

Glad you like the rib. I think it is awfully reminiscent of the other scarf I did a few weeks back that was brown (mistaken rib it was called) but I like them both. Cushy and warm.

Thanks for your kind words!

Hey mom who is moving away to a cold place? Everyone seems to be leaving.

Look, it's a kitty who befriended Roonil Wazlib who looks like Pippi! http://www.myspace.com/kittydrusilla

Ok, so I go to Drusilla's website and read all about her and listen to her rap--sooooo cute! She does look a lot like Pip. I think we should try ice cubes with Pippi and see if she will chase them. :^) Loved the comments from all the other visitors, esp that cute boy cat. :^)
