Ruffles from New Member

Hi! I am new to this KAL, and have just finished an inexact Ruffles replica as a Christmas Gift. I did it with Classic Elite Lush, three skeins. It's shorter than the pattern, but just as cute. It was a lot of fun to knit, and I love the Lush knit up; very soft and snuggly stuff. I used it to teach myself to 'knit backwards' to eliminate turning my needles every row. Very functional skill to have, and not as hard to learn as I expected.

Can't wait to start another project from this book, which I really enjoy. My daughter has asked for Falling Leaves which I swatched but got distracted by holiday knitting, shopping, and cooking. She saw it on a customer at our LYS (Webs) and thinks she needs it. The book is marvelously diverse. Something for everyone!!

    How smart of you to learn to knit backwards with this scarf. I don't feel quite ready to do that myself even though I am tired of flipping my knitting back and forth!

    I'm into my second skein of Cascade 220 so the end is in sight.

    I love the color you used!
