Scrunchable Sunshine (ravelink)
pattern: Scrunchable Scarf
yarn: Malabrigo Worsted (one and a half skeins)
needles: US 10 / 6.00 mm
Perfect. And just in time for these grey, grey wintry days. Sometimes, when I need a pick me up, these brightly colored scarves do just the trick. This and my Noro Striped Scarf do a lot just to make me feel a little more cheery.
Then there's the Secret Santa exchange... I don't usually knit with anything heavier than worsted, but in this case, I think it was called for.
Chunky Brioche Scarf (ravelink)
yarn: Cascade 128 Superwash, 2 skeins
needles: US 11 / 8.00 mm
I kind of just winged the pattern, casting on 18 stitches and just going at it with a brioche stitch. I fretted for a while about whether it'd be long enough. It turned out plenty long.
I really love it. The yarn is really soft and the brioche makes the scarf super squishy. I think I'll have to knit one for my self, though probably in a different color. I'll probably go down a needle size, too. I think it's a little too open.
The exchange was yesterday, and it was well received. :) Though, the recipient was a little perplexed as to who made it for her!
Anywho, I reckon I should return to my plethora of papers. Or maybe I'll knit some more. Who knows!
