It's a Scarf
Pattern: Different Lines by Veera Välimäki
Yarn: Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light in Smokestack and Stovepipe
Needles: US 7
John says he needs a haircut before he'll wear his scarf and pose for a picture. I can't cut his hair until tomorrow, which means you're stuck with these pictures today. They aren't so bad, but they'd be better with John looking so nice in his nice new scarf! :)
This was super easy to knit and kind of fun until the rows got so long at the end. If I hadn't done the 15th stripe (one more than the pattern calls for), it would have been perfectly bearable. I did use up almost all of the Stovepipe (blue) and have enough of the Smokestack left for part of a shawl. The construction is super clever and requires little to no brain power. I worried that I would forget to increase at the end of every other row if my brain got too far from my knitting, but looking back at it, I don't think I ever missed one that I didn't catch immediately. And if I did miss one, you sure can't tell!
He better wear it after I cut his hair tomorrow or I'm keeping it for myself!
