Can I Have Just One?Posted: November 27, 2005
I finished my Ruffles Scarf on Thanksgiving Eve.
I used 3 full balls of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran. When I finished the first ball, I seriously considered ripping the entire project because the messy short rows were really bothering me. Then I tried on the scarf, and the short rows weren’t very noticeable so I decided to go ahead. I went through the second ball of yarn very quickly. The third ball seemed to take forever to knit. At this point, it crossed my mind that perhaps DB CashAran was not the most ideal yarn for a short rows scarf. While CashAran is super soft, I wouldn’t describe it as “sturdy.” Perhaps the short rows would not have looked so messy on a sturdier yarn? Who knows. I’m just happy that I finished the scarf. And while I can’t have just one chip, I am definitely satisfied with just one Ruffles Scarf.
I will post more later this week about the other projects I worked on over the long weekend. In the meantime, please take a look at my de-stashing blog for the yarns and books I am selling. My knitting preferences have changed in recent months, and I am de-stashing the items that I don’t anticipate using. Thanks for looking!
