Just how much do I love this scarf?
I love it so much that I took this photo with partial viewing of my chicken pox face AND before its been blocked.
Actually today is my first official day of freedom, YIPPEE (imagine me doing a little happy dance)! I can now go out in the world and not be afraid of giving the chicken pock to someone else.
-It is the Bejeweled Scarf pattern from my life in stitches, whose blog I have truely enjoyed for awhile now.
-I used two balls of RYC Soft Lux in Mist 09.
-So here's the vague part, I think my gauge was off so I cast on a smaller number of stitches. Of course I can't remember exactly how many, and of course I did'nt write it down. Sorry.
Yep, I love everything about this one. It's soft, a little sparkly, super easy and fun to knit up. I'd love to use this yarn again, I think I would use the Sable color, it's amazing. I cannot yet totally invision what type of garment to make with it yet, it's tricky with a sparkly yarn, it could be too much. Maybe a real simple cropped cardigan, or vest. Hmmmm will have to ponder this for a bit.
So one of the reasons the scarf is not blocked yet is because I'm waiting for something to be shipped to me thats going to make blocking in a studio apartment a whole lot easier. Hee , hee, I will show you when it comes.
