So, it never got worn past the first day. I always thought I'd get around to making a backing, somehow, for it. With all the work in my basement though, the Singer 327 has not been used much, until this fall. Finally, I decided the day had come. I picked up a ball of Loops & Thread "Woolike" since I was pretty sure there wasn't enough of the Kroy white. I wasn't sure, while I was in the store, if the white was right. As it turns out, I should have gotten something a bit softer. Oh well.
|I originally took this picture with the scarf upside down, thinking I'd just flip the picture before posting. But I couldn't do it. LOL. It was just wrong to see 1/2 stitches in one colour|
I didn't want to mattress stitch it so I used my machine and a zig zag. Not the greatest job. A walking foot would have helped. And, the knit side still rolled in. I could have made the backing one repeat wider, or I could block it harder and top stitch, but I was done. The back is quite bright compared to the pattern, but I don't care. It's done, I wore it in public, and no one laughed :)
