DNA scarf

DNA scarf

I cast on for this project when I first started knitting in 2008, and now I’ve finally finished with it! I learned how to read a chart by doing this. This was also the first time that I steam blocked something. I really like the pattern, and want to try putting it on some other projects! In fact, I’m making a pair of fingerless gloves! πŸ™‚

Instead of using the full pattern with the mock twist cables, I did a k1p1 ribbing on the sides. The scarf curls a bit, even after blocking, so it probably would have been better to make the ribbing longer or to use a different stitch.

going on a trip!

Hello all, I’ll be away until December 27th, visiting my grandparents in LA, going to Vegas with the family, and enjoying the holidays.

Crafts-wise, I’m going to bring the DNA scarf project. I think I just need 2 more pattern repeats until I finally finish! So most likely you can check back in a week or so and see the finished scarf! πŸ™‚

Maybe I’ll also bring the scrap black yarn to make another crochet cat/dog? Really not sure if there is enough yarn though… I think I should probably save it to use in other projects. Black is such a common color. I was thinking of finding some patterns for amigurumi Zelda figures?
I should really bring the CPH, but there’s way too much stuff to bring for that project. Eventually I will finish it!
Or I could bring the random pink yarn I have and try making hearts? Should start that early. πŸ˜›

So, well, as you can see, even though it’s the morning before I leave, I’m still not exactly sure what to pack. OH, I have to find my DS and the charger to bring those for sure!

Anyways, that’s it for my rambling. Warm wishes for the holidays, and I hope everyone is able to spend it with their families/friends/loved ones. πŸ˜€ See you all in a week or so

Happy Holidays!

Schachenmayr nomotta MEGA

Oh, I’ve totally fallen in love. This yarn is simply fantastic.

Schachenmayr nomotta MEGA. Bulky/ 12 ply, 100% wool.
Doesn’t it sound exotic? Amazing color, super soft, shows stitches and texture so well, no major splitting tendencies. I WISH I HAD MORE.

Anyways, the point is, I’ve finally finished this project! This Amazing yarn paired with a scrumptious pattern means that I have to find an excuse to wear scarves more often. Winter, hurry fast!
