Now Listening: Beck – Beercan
So, the scarf is finished, and I cannot be any happier.
I thought this would be simply a doodle, something that I would frog after a few rows, but it didn’t turn out that way. Instead, I kept on knitting. I took it to Starbucks, where it got stares and loads of compliments. I knit it on the bus, where a few kids were ecstatic when I let them try it on. I showed it to the knitting group, where they begged for the pattern. All in all, I think it was lurking in the back of my mind, wondering when it would strike me with it’s abstract flow.
This is all mosaic colorwork, which deals with slipped stitches. I said before that mosaics are the op-art of the knitting world, and this scarf has everything to hold with the idea. The colors, the design, it all pops at you and is very striking.
Yarn used: Two skeins of Red Heart’s ‘With Love’, Colorways ‘Peacock’ and ‘Daffodil’
Size: 7 in. by almost 6 ft., unblocked
Time took: About a month.
Seeing that this scarf is acrylic, I have qualms about blocking it. Right now, it looks pretty neat, so I don’t think I’ll block it just yet. Or ever. Maybe just a hand-wash/wet block to even it out. Who knows.
And yes, there’s a pattern upcoming. 😀
Edit: Aug. 1, 2015 – I got the pattern up and running! http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/telepathy Hope you enjoy it. 😀
