While knitting the big brown shawl, I realized I’d skipped over the Classic Beginner’s Project. A scarf. I’d never knitted a scarf. Ergo, I picked out a pattern on Ravelry and got crackin’. (My Ravelry notes are here.)

I’m incapable of following directions, so of course the pattern is modified. I made the scarf nice and wide. Shawl-like, as all my projects end up being.

(Side note – I dreamed last night that I wore this scarf. Along with my PJs. On a walk. From here to a town twenty miles over. In the snow. With a dalmatian. And I forgot my keys and had to turn around and go home. Which made no sense, why would I need my keys in another town?)

Ahem. Anyway.

I used Lion Brand Scarfie yarn, bought on Amazon. If you pay attention on Amazon, you can get certain colorways of yarn for much cheaper than anywhere else. It’s not always about saving money, but knitting is one of those hobbies that can cost a small fortune if you’re not careful.

It took me about 2 weeks to knit this, start to finish. I got distracted somewhere in the middle and set the whole thing down for awhile. Otherwise, it’s easy-peasy. The pattern is alternating sections of waffle stitch and plain old stockinette.

I like it. A lot. The yarn is a wool blend and the scarf is very warm. C-o-z-y.

See you later!

  1. I must be blind because I didn’t see where to comment on your earlier posts and wanted to.
    1. Your brown shawl is beautiful. You really are quite the knitter, something I’ve never learned to do.
    2. The gorgeous sunrises and sunsets from your new-old home are worth the price of the house. What a bonus that a previous owner added the windows to bring the view indoors.
    3. The owl pictures on the snowy branches are worthy of framing or of cards, or both! How interesting that he/she stayed there all day.
    4. Thank you for featuring the magnificent mustangs. What a sight to see.

    That’s it for now. Happy Holidays!

  2. Love your scarf and the colors. Looks like you’ll get a lot of use from it as I imagine you have cold winters.

    And, no, I didn’t drop of the face of the earth. Just dealing with a slow computer.

    Merry Christmas!
