I Have an FO!

Finally, I have a finished object! It’s a little thing but it IS a finished object. That counts, right? This is the Jewelled X that I posted about last week. It’s a quick knit, very simple yet very satisfying and I love how it turned out.

jewelled x3Basically, it is nothing but a loop of stocking stitch with a beaded, lacy X that can be worn in different ways, much like the infinity scarves that are everywhere these days.

jewelled x2Here it is looped twice around my everlasting sweet pea trellis (which are growing like crazy!). The weather’s a little warm for a scarf these days but I can see it becoming part of my wardrobe in the fall.

In the meantime, I went on the hunt for another simple, semi-mindless project and found one. I went back to my own bookshelves and found, or shall I say re-found, the book “Knitting New Scarves” by Lynne Barr. I’d started one of the scarves before (New Wave), just to try it, but this time I’ve decided to make it… for real.

new wave 1It’s a fun little scarf, quite narrow, so it will be more of an accent piece than a keep-you-warm scarf. The yarn is Fleece Artist Blue Face Leicester DK and the scarf is knit on 4.5 and 6.0 mm needles. Yes, two different sizes. In actuality, the scarf is a double-knit. The thing that makes it wavy is that one side is knit on the smaller needles while the other is knit on the larger needles and contains two extra rows. After 5 rows, the stitches are combined and the sides switch. Does that make any sense at all?

There’s just enough concentration required to keep the knitting interesting.
