Finished Project: Airy Scarf

Filed under: Knitting 

Project Specs:
Pattern: Airy Scarf from Last Minute Knitted Gifts
Yarn: Rowan’s Kidsilk Night color 610
Needles: US 10.5
Size: 6″ x 38″
Pattern Alterations: Since I was starting with less than half a ball, I didn’t know if I would have enough yarn. So I went up a needle size and CO 20 sts instead of 22 sts.

You bet! This is an airy scarf. I blocked it quite severely to lengthen it a bit. This scarf, though small, is strangely warm. Now I understand Wendy’s e-mail about her River shawl.
Tell Dena she saved my life last night.  I was one of those “I cannot get warm!” nights.   And I took a hot shower and while I was in the shower, I remembered my heavenly river shawl!!!  I took it out of it’s happy little keepsake cozy and put it on after my shower and I stayed warm for the rest of the night.  It’s like magic.
Good luck Wendy. I hear it’s 0° in Minnesota right now.

Another holiday gift finished. Six more to go, two of which I’ve already started. Oh, and crazy me. I’ve agreed to do another project for the store right now. I’m a sucker for store credit.

  4. I love your scarf so much that I went and bought 3 colors in the Kidsilk Night to make 3 scarves. I’ve used this pattern before but with a heavier yarn. You really hit it with this yarn and bigger needles. Gorgeous!

  8. Less than half a ball? That may make it on my list after all. Lovely!
