FO: 'Monster' scarf
FINALLY!

This is a scarf I knitted for my nephew. The original pattern called for a worsted weight yarn but being an idiot that I was, I used a bulky yarn without decreasing the number of stitches or measuring the width of it!! Live and learn!!

And.... because it's a textured yarn, I didn't continue the ribbing pattern after I saw there's no point of doing it.

Anyhow... this monster is about 11 in. wide and 61 in. length. I'm just glad that this damn thing is finished because I just want to move on to my next project.

I do NOT like Home Spun!!!!

scarf
I love the colors, and I kinda like scarves that are wide-ish.

I have not had much success with Homespun "yarn," and I doubt I would ever use it again now that I know there is real yarn out there!

It looks lovely!!!

I know what you mean about Homespun. If I use really HUGE needles, then knitting with it isn't that bad. But I'd prefer a nicer bulky yarn without the weird ziggy-zag business!

Do you have a more exciting project in store for you now?!

I have a triangle shawl for my mom, a vest for my dad, and an afghan for I don't know who yet. I'm just excited to know that I will knit non-square objects! The funny thing is my dh asked me tonight if I could knit matching hat and booties for a 6-month old baby for his friend in Sweden. Then he started saying about knitting a few christmas gifts for our friends.

Dang! I should start charging him....

LOVE the colors!

I love a big ol scarf. Homespun has its quirks. I have a love/hate relationship with it
