FO A Scarf for Drea
This scarf ended up really long! I thought I would make a fashion scarf for my DN. This is an example of why swatches should be washed and blocked kids

I used the Woven Stitch and it was knitted in Ivy League Cotton Worsted

I cast on 232 stitches, long tail cast on, size 9 needle; knit it in a size 7, 3 stitches on the end of each row were done in the seed stitch. 4 pattern repeats, knit one row, purl one row, and then bind off. It is 5" wide and nearly 8 feet long, including the tassels.

That's lovely. Very beautifully done. I like the way the colors worked out too. I always wash and machine dry my Peaches & Creme, I never even thought about blocking it. Something different to consider. Thanks!

The only difference between an experienced knitter and new knitter is that the experienced knitter makes bigger mistakes faster. Be bold; there are no terrible consequences in knitting.

Absolutely! Got my blocking materials together so now I am a blocking fool. That is the "Moondance Wingspan", also for my DN. She doesn't know about the scarf, if I can manage to contain myself it will be a surprise. Scarf pin arrived yesterday, so it is time to pull this package together.

Hey look at it this way, plenty to wrap around and keep warm. It looks good even with the length!!!

It really looks great with the yarn you chose! Great work, Claire! An extra long scarf is better than a too short scarf! It has so many ways to be worn!
