ruffles scarf


ruffles scarf

Ok it took me 2 years but I finally completed this thing. The short rows drove me crazy and it was hard to see progress. But overall, it was an easy knit. I originally went to Yarniverse in Memphis to buy some Classic Elite Premiere, which they didn't carry, and the owner recommended Garnstudio Angora Tweed as a replacement. A nice yarn, but far too bulky for this scarf once I finished it. It will still be a great scarf come winter (if the record breaking 100 degree heat for 2 straight weeks ever goes away!)

    This is beautiful. And love LOVe silver too. 2 years is a crazy time to knit something. I start, and then usually whatever my project is consumes every waking hour til its done. haunts my dreams etc etc. Something thats taken that long should be framed or loaned out at extortionate amounts! I'll be first in the queue. nice work :)

    I have never really wanted to knit this scarf until I saw your version. Looks great, and so sparkly! Great job.
