Knitting a Quick Scarf

 Okay, I played around a bit with photo editing on this one.

This is a pattern I found when the amazing Judy of Stitch Along With Me directed me to Yarn Harlot for this scarf pattern. It is simple! (You should see the gorgeous yarn she spins. I cheated - I purchased my yarn.) And be sure to visit Judy's website to see the many beautiful items she has knitted!

For the red scarf, I used a chunky yarn and size 11 needles.
For the blue scarf, I used a medium weight yarn and again used the size 11 needles. It gave it a more open, lacy look.



I made it just long enough to wrap around my neck and tuck into my coat. It's nice to have that little bit of extra protection against the wild winter winds of Wisconsin - to go with my down-filled coat, my insulated boots, snowpants, polar fleece hat, and gloves. ( Oh, must not forget the ear muffs!)

Re. Knitting: Am I the only one who doesn't seem to get the ends woven in until weeks after a project is made??

Be sure to enter my handcrafted soaps GIVEAWAY.  Deadline for entry is February 2 at midnight. The winner will be announced here on my blog on February 3 :-)

A scarf is the only thing I can knit, after taking a beginner class a few years ago. I made a potholder, but can't remember how I did it or find the instructions. But a scarf is fun -- and depserately need up here in the north!

Your scarves look great! That pattern also looks wonderful with variagated yarns. How's the toy pig coming? Can't wait to see.

Did you connect the ends? I did for the scarves I knitted for DD3 and DD4 for Christmas (we hand made gifts this year)...apparently, when you do that, they're called neck warmers! Who knew? LOL

They are beautiful! I love that pattern. I have not knitted in a long time, but would love to start again. I like the red. I hope you are doing well and staying warm! Have a great night!

And I was thinking what a lovely piece of fashion you'd knitted...I forget just going out to your mailbox requires wrapping up :))
The lacy look is indeed so delicately feminine!
