Day 14: 31 Day Challenge – Thick Circular Scarf

Friday, January 14th, 2011

I made this scarf using chunky burgundy yarn with a carrier yarn that was thin and fluffy, then I stripped it with a chunky variegated  brown yarn.  The stitches I used were knit one purl one on opposite rows which is referred to as the moss stitch.  This scarf is so thick that it stands up at attention in a way that none of the other scarves have.  I have to admit.  I’m really attached to this one.  I am planning to make one for myself very soon and maybe some to sell some because I LOVE this.

Here I am modeling the scarf, morning hair and all.  I wanted to show how it sits on an actual person, because it can be hard to see this on the mannequin.  I got a picture of myself in it, but then I felt you couldn’t see the stitches.  Below are better pictures of the actual scarf.

Here you can see the sexy that is the this scarf.  I don’t care if I sound crazy talking about my love for this scarf, because it’s real. It fits so well and it so cozy.

This project is the last of the projects that I will be giving away.  Now it’s back to the wide world of projects for me {Rubbing hands together in a schemey kind of way}.

Day 14: Thick Circular Scarf –

This final scarf goes to Oona.  I know Oona and she is such a good person with great Karma so she gets the scarf I like the best.  Congratulations Oona on your winnings and for paying to forward with me in 2011!

In case you didn’t read my first blog post about this project . . . this post is part of a 31 day challenge I am doing to bring more creativity, stories and solutions to my life.  I have been using my creativity almost exclusively for work in the recent past and for the month of January I will creating things for my personal life, talking about them and taking pictures.  I would love input from readers as to which project you enjoy the most and if I get enough comments on one particular project I’ll turn it into a tutorial after the 31 day challenge of crafting, stories and solutions is over.  So please let me know what you like!
