Intro & My first Finished Scarf.
I just got Scarf Style for Christmas this past December, and I fell in love with bunches of patterns. I was drawn to Vintage Velvet for some reason, but I just couldn't quite justify the yarn.
Then I stopped in my LYS and they had a basket of it up front. The folks who say that touching it sells it are right - I ended up buying it right then and there.
This was a fast knit. I'd sworn I wasnt' going to do cables again after I finished a 6-foot DNA helix scarf for my husband for Christmas, but it was fun. I was terrified to felt it, so I knitted my leftover yarn into a small square and did that first, to prove to myself it would work. It did, and the scarf worked beautifully too.
I've also done a Shippo Tail scarf, and I'm working on Ene right now. A tip for the marker-moving problem, by the way. I use soft rubber stitch markers, and you can pull the passed-over stitches right over the markers without them getting knitted into the material. I was able to use those for all the repeats in the border to keep them straight, and they were a lifesaver. I'm just about done with my first repeat of Chart 3.
