My second scarf

This is my second scarf. I put my own twist to it so it is not Authentic but I think it still looks okay.

I did it in 8ply white yarn and 2ply alpaca yarn. It needs to be blocked but here it is anyways.

After 7 months and over 12,000 stitches (37 repeats) I finished my scarf. A family member wanted to know how many stitches went into it for some reason. It's the perfect length for the recipient. THey can wear it to work come winter and not worry about it getting messed up.

My trails and tribulations of the IHS!

I really don't think I am suppose to knit this. Ugh!! I have ripped out it out a couple of times as I didn't like the yarn that I was using. I finally found a yarn that I like and its turning out great. I have 3 inches done.

BUT!!! I have now lost the pattern with the rows that I have completed and do not know which row I am on. I think I know but am not sure. Errrrr!!

I am using Charleston yarn by Stylecraft. It is 67% Acrylic Courtelle, 33% Nylon. The colour is white with flecks of yellow, blue, pink and it so softy and fuzzy. perfect for the scarf. I thought that I would work on it tonight but I guess I'm not.

Hopefully this sheet is around my messy desk somewhere. Maybe in the glove box of the car. Will have to check when hubby gets home.

Thanks for letting me vent!

Almost Done

The scarf is at 35 pattern repeats. It's at a decent length right now, but I'm aiming for 42 repeats. Why did the first 20 repeats take 20 months and the last 15 take 2 weeks?

This is what it looked like around the beginning of last week.
