Another WIP….done!

Yay!  I completed the Wingspan scarf I started late last summer!  I think a big part of why this one went wayside was the yarn.  I used some weird novelty yarns, and some Lion Brand Amazing that I had left over from a previous project.  It looks…interesting.

It’s a strange combination of textures, I will admit that, but it’s, well, interesting.  I’m not sure how I feel about it.  Do I like it?  Don’t I?  Will someone out there like it? Who knows.  All I know, it’s finished.

See the project details on Ravelry, if you are interested.

Wingspan Scarf: Completed

Yay!  My Wingspan scarf is finally complete!  I actually finished it last week, but I’m still proud of it. 
Project details?  Here they are:
·         Size 7 24’’ circular needle
·         DK Weight Yarn, Noro Shiraito, about two skeins
·         Skills needed:  knitting and short rows, slipping stitches purlwise
Pretty basic stuff, and if you want to learn short rows, this is a good project to give it a try.  If you’ve made this scarf, I’d love to see your FO’s.  Link them in the comments!

Camaraderie

I recently completed a knitting class to learn how to do the Wingspan scarf/shawl pattern that can be found on Ravelry.  It was fun and I will post pictures of my project when it is done.
I’ll admit something.  I could’ve easily have figured out this pattern on my own.  The real reason I took the class?  I wanted some knitting camaraderie!  I love hanging out with other knitters while we are working on a project and just shooting the breeze.  I paid money for that.  And I don’t regret it!
Last night was the final hour of the class.  Three of us sat around a table, knitting, and talking about life.  One big topic was movies.  It was another common thread between us and it was refreshing.  I need to hang out and knit with my fellow knitters more.
