Tipper's Birthday

Hi All, I almost missed this myself, but it was listmom Tipper's birthday last week! Ya gotta mouse on over to her blog, see her fabulous cake, and send her some belated b-day love.

Vintage Velvet

I have a new project from Scarf Style. My friend wants a scarf for her birthday so I picked this one. I'm using Knit Picks Palette (100% Peruvian wool) in Petal, double-stranded for the scarf. I'm not sure if I'm going to put it through the wash to felt it a little bit - I'll see when I'm done because I didn't use the yarn called for in the pattern. Here is what it looks like so far - I've only done the first 16 rows.

I don't really think the yarn is that bright in person, although it was brighter than I anticipated from the website when I ordered it.

Another Newbie here

Hello from Northern California. I stumbled across your Scarf Style blog and have since moved the book to the top of my "wish list". I can't wait to start some of the beautiful scarves.

Being fairly new to knitting (I started Mar 1, 05) some of the scarves may be beyond my limited abilities, but being adventurous with knitting needles, maybe not.

Introducing Myself

Hi,
This is my first post.. I think I am doing it right ?
I absolutely Love the Scarf Style Book and I want to make almost everything that is in it. All I need are a few more hands... :)
I am not really sure which project I will start with but I am sort of leaning towards Enes Scarf..
I will also be wipping up some of the ripple scarves for My grandaughters.. Love those Pom Poms..
The Fair Isle scarf is very intreging. Has anyone done that one yet?
I just started a Blog http://pennyknits.blogspot.com/
But I don't quite know how to work it yet... Guess I need to find some HELP... I published Twice and it says that I published twice but I guess they are one two seperate pages because the link will only take you to the First one. How do I publish on the same page continuously? Like here on Scarf Styla?
Well.. Thanks for "listening"

Halfway Through Ene's Scarf



I'm having a great time knitting this shawl/scarf. I'm using a discontinued fingering-weight yarn (K1C2's Madelaine) and US 8 needles.

Another Ruffles! This project was so much fun to knit! I was happy to learn how to knit backwards, too. I used Debbie Bliss Cotton Cashmere-- it is the perfect weight for all seasons! I was knitting at school one day (I'm a teacher) and one of my students told me it looked like I was knitting DNA. Now everyone refers to it as my double helix, instead of just "Ruffles." Posted by Picasa

Finished Ene's!

I love this pattern! Don't be intimidated by the charts or the cast on amount. It really knit quickly once you get going.

Details on my blog.

I'll be looking for your Ene's scarf!

Another Midwest Moonlight

Here is my finished Midwest Moonlight. I really liked this pattern and enjoyed knitting it. I had never done a pattern with so many yarn overs etc so I wanted to give myself the experience.

Midwest Moonlight


Hi, I have been following this knit along for awhile. Wow! What a beautiful bunch of scarves you all have created. Here is my first from the book. It is made from 70% baby alpaca/30% merino from Elann.

heya!

Hello! I am Tracy, from London and am new to the blog. My plan is to knit the Lady Eleanor entrelac stole. I have never done entrelac before...so at this point I am teaching myself by swatching several yarns (to see which I might want to use)...I am considering Noro Kucheron and Debbie Bliss Maya. I am wanting long and gentle color transitions with mostly natural looking colors transitioning into a bright here and there. It seems that a lot of the Kureon colorways end up quite bright and patchy which is gorgeous but not quite the look I'm looking for. The Kucheron is a blend, the Maya is a 100% wool....boy they are both sooo pretty.

Questions for you entrelac pros:
1) do you all knit backwards?
2) did you wrap your short rows? (even backwards? LOL)
3) How long did it take you?

Here is a pic of the 'mess' on my needle last night (the mess everyone says is good!)...(it's the Maya)....

Hmm photo upload doesn't seem to be working. Check out my
blog for the photo.
