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.
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!
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.
