FO ~ scarf using Wool-Ease
Finally finished my THIRD project

This is a scarf for my 12 yr old. I made it with LB Wool-Ease thick and Quick. The color is Claret 143 and is REALLY beautiful, the pictures don't give it justice.

I used size 13 needles (my first pair of bamboo ) And I didn't follow a pattern. It was learning piece to do Stockinette. Then first end were mistakes that I decided to leave and make it a decorative end I basically just mimicked it for the other end. Didn't turn out EXACTLY the same since the first time was a mistake and all. But nonetheless its close.

ALso... I had issues with curling (note to self... don't do a scarf in Stockinette) but I blocked it last night after I was done with it and its laying pretty flat now.

Ok enough rambling... here it is.



and a close up of the ends that don't "quite" match

One way to eliminate curling on the ends is to do 3 or 4 stitches on each row garter (so knit 3 or 4 stitches on each end each row) This helps make it lie flat.

Even if it curls a bit, it will be warm and soft and purty!!
