So I knit some more!
I must tell you that this scarf was a result of two things.
1- I cast on a hat out of Veronik Avery's new book Knitting 24/7 (the best knitting book I've gotten my dirty paws on in a long time) out of this yarn and it pooled... this isn't always a bad thing- in fact, I thought it was a good thing when it started to happen. But the deeper I got into the hat... the more I fell out of love with it.
So, I rrrrrriped it out.
And promptly cast on this lovely little ascot- because I felt this yarn just simply couldn't go un-knit.
Which leads me to # 2- When Estelle's fancy-fun novelty yarn Frill Seeker graced our shelves a couple of weeks ago, we couldn't keep it in stock. Our inventory is now rather depleted and the supplier is clean out. It occured to me that Mary's Yarns just couldn't handle not having an alternative ruffly-scarf option for even a moment.
Aaaannnnnd... queue the Churchmouse patterns.
I cast on the required 648 stiches and off I went. Nothing but a whole lotta knits, purls, increases and decreases. The most time consuming part was casting on (which I believe I spread out over two days) but after that, it was all fun and games (seriously).
Info you tend to want to know as follows-
Pattern- Churchmouse Classics 'Barb's Ruffled Scarf.
Yarn- 2 skeins of Shibui Staccato in shade Bohemian
Needles- 4mm and 3.5mm.
BOOM! There are your ruffles folks.
And so, I leave you with this sheep today.
Thank you for your wool.
