Still making scarves!

I am sick and tired of tucking in ends. One of the byproducts of making a two color scarf is a MILLION ENDS. So I decided to make a scarf with the red and blue yarn at the same time. That way, only 4 ends, or 2 if you tuck in both at once. (I do them separately, because I feel that it looks better, but it really doesn’t matter.) Because I used two yarns, I used a much bigger needle to keep the fabric soft. Here’s the pattern, so that you can make a bunch too!! Oh, and they are really fast to make. Mine only took three hours, and that includes tucking in ends.

Materials-
Worsted yarn in the colors decided on by the Special Olympics scarf people (link: http://www.scarvesforspecialolympics.org/states )
Size 17 needles

Cast on 13 sts
*Knit, purl* repeat across (work in seed stitch)
Repeat until 54-60″ long
Cut yarn, tuck in ends.

See, it’s easy!! Great to make while watching a TV show, because it requires very little cognitive function. ^_^

3 down, insert big number to go!!

I finished my 3rd/1st (started it first, finished it third) scarf for the special Olympics!! So excited to see everyone else’s. (My knitting club is working on some as well. :D) If you haven’t seen it before, here’s the link for the scarf project: http://www.scarvesforspecialolympics.org/

More scarves!!

I finished another one!!
And I have photographs. :) As you can tell, I actually got around to taking pics of the stuff I’ve made. If you want to, you can check out some of my older posts, which now have pictures. For example, my two cardigans, minion, and my guinea pig pattern. Yay for not procrastinating any more!!

Scarves

Well, I finished my granny-square scarf, and I’m in the muddle if knitting two others. One has narrow vertical stripes, the other wide, horizontal ones. :) (I had to get more yarn…) It feels awesome to make something and know it’s going to make someone else really happy.

Update: here’s a photo (or two) of my first scarf!!
