Vintage Velvet

Hi everyone,

I'm new to the group and just wanted to introduce myself and say hello.
I'm working on the Vintage Velvet scarf from the book. I'm knitting it as a model for the yarn shop I work at part-time. I will also make one for myself when I'm finished with this one. Mine will be olive green. I also want to do the Ruffle (surprise surprise!) but I have my heart set on using Classic Elite: Miracle which is a tencel/alpaca blend. The shop doesn't have it, so I may have to order it, and that means no shop discount! So, I may resort to the tencel/cotton we have at the shop....wah! Anyway, here's a shot of my progress so far on Vintage Velvet.

    Hi,

    I too work in a yarn shop part-time teaching evenings during the week and selling on Sundays. I had just purchased the Muench chenille to start this scarf for my daughter for Christmas when the shop accidentally sold my book which I'd left on the table while selecting my yarn! So, I had to wait two weeks for a new book. I started knitting the other night, late, and frogged because I couldn't get with the pattern - but it was late. Any advice now that you're well into it?

    Thanks,

    Carol
