Since I missed out on blogging for so long, I figured I can catch you guys up on what I’ve knit and what I’ve been doing in that time. Perfect use for Throwback Thursdays, IMO.
This week’s TBT is pretty recent. I made this scarf in June of this year for my husband. It was my first Camp Loopy project and unlike the third one that didn’t end well, this one did. It was such an easy pattern to knit (all knit all the time) and went really fast. I found it pleasantly dull. Amazingly enough, I didn’t get bored of it as I enjoyed seeing the colors come together.
It’s knit with the yarn held single, then double, then single again to create the stripes. It makes it thick and thin, but it’s not that noticeable. Since it’s knit in a tube it is super duper warm, which I think hubby will be very thankful for in the winter.
The yarn was amazing to work with. I am such a huge fan of Shalimar Breathless and the lace didn’t disappoint. I’m *this* close to stealing it from my husband it feels that amazing on the skin.
O loved loved loved it and wanted to model it for me. She has been begging for me to make her one. I have enough yarn leftover that I definitely can, so I will make her a smaller version soon. Then I can try to get a picture of the two of them wearing it at the same time. How adorable would that be? 😉
