At the last MK group meeting, I took a ball of ruffle yarn to use up. I wanted to use a backing yarn with it, but none of the yarns I wanted to use looked good (I had yarns that I didn't want to use that looked good though, LOL). I got started on it without the backing yarn. Five needles, with two out of work between each. Knit for a few rows, and found a knot in the yarn. Worked around that, after a while, I decreased down to 4 and then 3 needles in work, then increased outwards again.
However...the decreases/increases ended up being too much towards one end. So, I brought it home, figuring I'd get it re-done soon. Well, that meeting was the last week of November...and I just worked it up on Sunday evening. But it went much quicker this time....I think because it was easier to knit it straight from the old scarf than from the ball (and plus, there wasn't the distractions there were at the meeting).
It's a charming little scarf, not too ruffly, with a hint of glimmer. Not a crazy, bright, over the top scarf, but more subtle.
I didn't weigh this, and I didn't include it in last year's totals. Should I? I had certainly intended it to be finished by Christmas, LOL. I also have a Baby Surprise Jacket that was waiting to be sewn up since the early fall. It still needs buttons, but really, it was "done" long before the end of the year. Should I include it? Sort of feels like cheating, LOL.
This scarf is for sale, just to let you know :)
