cast on, cast off

that's just how it felt to knit this dream of a scarf. I purchased the yarn and received the pattern, when I visited SO Original with lisa. what a wonderful yarn shop! lana had so many tempting projects on display that I left with yarn for three! add those to her huge book, pattern, and yarn selection and you'd be in stitches for years.




Pattern: Dropped Stitch Scarf by SO original
Yarn: Araucania, Ulmo Multy, in color #704; 1 skein
Needles: US 7
Project Notes: This project will keep you interested! There are multiple yarn overs that make the varying length, bar-like design in between knitting rows. So it's easy to find and fix mistakes. (I know, because I made a few.)

not sure what direction my crafting will take next. I have a beautiful punch needle project, my Christmas quilt, and a lacy shawl all calling my name...

**many thanks for all your wonderfully kind comments on my last post. I hope you're on your way to finishing a project that's been dangling. much love to you.**

oooooooo! I love it. It turned out beautifully. How long did it end up being? I'll be starting mine soon, as soon as I cast off this cowl. Today it really feels like fall so I'm super motivated. Miss you.

Beautiful! I knit this scarf pattern years ago and it didn't look nearly this wonderful because I used a yarn that had a bit of a fuzzy quality. I hope you're keeping this one for yourself!
