In Which the Pirate Finishes a Scarf.
Just in time for the warm weather (it’s 75 degrees F outside right now), it’s my So-Called Scarf! Made of almost three skeins of Manos del Uruguay in colorway 101 (jungle), it measures out to be 70 inches long and almost 6 inches wide, unblocked. There’s a little extra yarn left over, which I’ll use as the contrast color on a hat. I have some tan Manos left over from another project for the main hat color.
The scarf took just over two months to knit, though I mainly worked on it at Stitch ‘n Bitches or at friends’ houses. It was a great mindless knitting project – more complex than plain stockinette or garter stitch, but still simple enough that I could knit and hold a conversation at the same time. I love that it doesn’t look like standard knitting, too.
I had to sharpen the images up a little so that the stitches showed well, but it seems to be a fairly accurate color representation. Of course, your monitor may vary. Hmmm… looks like I need a haircut soon.
