My So Called Scarf - FO (Pics up tonight)
Got my yarn for my step-mom's winter set yesterday. Was having a tough time deciding between the scrunchable pattern, or the my so called scarf one. So, I cast on a few stitches and knit up little samples. With the help of my DBF, I decided on the my so called scarf pattern. Found here.

Worked on it at work today. Got about 10 inches done. Out of the 60 I have to do.

The yarn is Plymouth Encore Worsted Colorspun #7304. I this yarn!! It feels so great! I can't remember who recommended it to me, but I love you!!




Someday I'll get a camera that takes good pictures so I can stop saying that the colors are off. It's not as green in person. And much more vibrant. First pic is closer to the actual color.
I am soooooo in love with this yarn. I want to make everything out of it.

Thanks. ^_^

There's actually already a number of little mis-stitches. But I doubt anyone will be able to notice.


I was originally going to add a pattern to it (don't know if you remember me asking you about it) but I decided not to since the yarn I get was already multicolored.

Glad you like the Encore. I have used it in the past for my BIL's hat that I made him for Christmas and I loved working with it. I'm not sure if I was the one that recommended it to you or not, but it is great doing a project when you really like the yarn you are working with. I find it is a lot funner to do!

That is gorgeous! I love Encore, too. I made a scrunchable with it.

Well, I'm up to 38 inches.
I'll wait till it's done before I take more pics. Doesn't look much different from the first ones...just longer.

Hopefully I'll have this done tomorrow or the next day. Then I can get started on her hat and send it on it's merry way. ^_^
