View Full Version : ON KungFu scarf

My son is very much into KungFu--learning and teaching--so I wanted to make him something that involved that. He gave the boys shirts that had YinYangs and Mantis on them, so I started a scarf in the round with a mantis on one side and the yin yang on the other. I'll do the same on the other end. I didn't knit the intarsia in the round, I just joined when I finished the motifs.

It's a little bumpy, but I haven't done any adjusting on the back, yet.

It's made with Plymouth Encore dk.

OK - I dont know WHERE my head is this mornin, but the first time I read that, it said "YinYang on one side and MARTINIS on the other". I looked at the scarf (AWESOME, btw!) and was like "What the h-e-double-hockeysticks kind of martinis is SHE drinkin???" :rollseyes: :oops:

That's awesome Ingrid!

But, I have a question...
How do you knit so many things so quickly..
AND write so many posts at KH...
AND work?

Tell the truth.. there are three of you, right?

You're right, my sisters in the basement do all the work! Ahahahahah!

I just knit every night from the time the g'kids go to bed until I do, always too late, stopping in on the computer between rows/sections.

The pattern was really no big deal. If it can be drawn on graph paper, it can be knit.

Thanks for the compliments, though. I hope my son likes it as much.

Took me a minute to figure out what the H-E-[double hockey sticks] you meant! Too funny Kelly! :roflhard:

I drew it on graph paper. I can try to take a picture of it, or if you want I can make a copy at work tomorrow and mail it to you. Just pm me your address.
