So I was walking the aisles in Michael’s the other day looking for stitch markers and spotted this bargin.Incredible for $2 a ball. I quickly snapped up 3 balls to make a dropped stitch scarf for my mom. The result is this.
Yarn: Lion Brand Incredible in Autumn Leaves
Needles: Denise Interchangables in Size 15
Pattern: Dropped Stitch Scarf from Stitch and Bitch Nation
My take on the project: The scarf took me about 6 hours to finish. The gauge is super chunky so I cast on 12 stitches instead of the specified 17. Still worked out well. Now I miscalculated the amount of yarn I would need. I only knit 1 ball of yarn and it yielded a 5 foot scarf. Now what to do with 2 balls of ribbon that I normally would never knit with??? Come on guys, give me some ideas! This is a yarn that I would on an ordinary day never buy but it was such a deal. My mom has been asking for a fancy scarf and I think this will satisfy her insatiable need for hand knit fancy scarves.The light isn’t so good so the colors aren’t as bright. It’s a cloudy day in San Diego today.
In honor of my sick but recovering puppy, here are some pictures of him and Matt.
