Ellie’s short attention span scarf is finished!
We are both really pleased with it! It started as a swatch — I was trying to decide whether to do the scarf in stockinette, garter, or moss stitch. She liked it with all the different stitches, so it took off from there. I took out my stitch dictionary and did everything from reverse triangles to a few lace patterns and on an on. It made for very interesting knitting. I found that I could not put the scarf down, because I wanted to see all the new stitch patterns form up!
The one downside was that some of the fancier stitches were wasted in the handpainted yarn. But the ultimate result with all the color and texture is extremely pleasing and I’m glad I decided to put the extra length into it so she could wrap it around her neck a few times.
