Thanks everybody. Picked up a set of addi's. Just knitted my first few rows with it. The more slippery metal surface takes a bit getting used too.; but in genral I like it better than my bamboo straight needles. I'm really gonne have a lot of enjoyment of these needles. While at the shop I took the matching crochet needles with me too. i didn't have crochet needles yet so this way I covered that at the same time :-)

I'll start a new trheread about the current scarf i'm making. That's just a simple 12" wide scarf in garter stitch but the blickfang yarn makes for a very nice fabric.

Wouter.

Hi Wouter!

Congrats on your Addis! Did you purchase the interchangeable set of Addi Clicks?

Or, "set circs"?

Well, I'm dying to follow your scarf progress! It's a very interesting yarn in a beautiful color. Plus, I'm glad to hear that you've chosen garter stitch. The scarf won't roll into a tube, and will be totally reversible. I've used garter stitch with larger needles (US 13 or US 15) many a time with unusual yarns! You're truly letting the yarn type create the art!

Just a thought to consider: if you cast on a large number of stitches for a 12" wide scarf, are you sure you'll have enough yarn to go at least 48" in length? The wider you go, the more yarn it will take to reach a suitable "scarf length".

I can't remember if you stated how many hanks you have. If it's just one, my recommendation is: cast on for a 6" wide scarf.

Hi,

It's the addi clicks i got. really like em a lot. I have 3 skeins of the yarn. the shop owner told me that would be sufficient for a really long scarf. She suggested 12" wide and somewhere between 60" and 80" (150 -200cm)

here you'll be able to follow the project; :http://www.knittinghelp.com/forum/sh...d.php?t=116009

Wouter.

So happy to hear you invested in the set of Clicks!!

And I agree with the shop lady...with 3 hanks.... your 12" wide scarf will reach a great length!
