not enough scarves

January 11, 2011

While visiting SO CAL last weekend I was able to coerce my son and granddaughter, (uncle and niece) into modeling and my son's girlfriend into taking the photos.


Just Enough Ruffles above, knit with 5 skeins of RYC Cashsoft Aran. I made this for my daughter and made it a little longer and wider by casting on 20 more stitches and doing about 5 more short rows. Look at that shiny hair!
This blue one was my first Just Enough Ruffles, made with less than 2 skeins of Malabrigo Worsted. So soft. My granddaughter now wants a Ruffles scarf and I'll make it the smaller size for her, but if I make one again for me, I'll use my modifications to make it larger.


The third scarf is Curly, in Kim Hargreaves The Next Big Thing booklet. Knit with 3 skeins of Nashua Equinox Stripe in Mocha Latte. A very quick knit, this was made for my son in less than 3 hours. I have some Big Wool in my stash and think I'll make a few of these for gifts.
