This little scarf was very quick to knit! and I love how it feels....because it is made of a nice soft wool/silk blend. I have ordered some cashmere/wool blends to create a few more of these. Also, making this used less than one skein--so this is a good economical project for some more expensive luxury yarns....
(now guess what I'm making this year for holiday gifts?) I may even knit some of these to put up for sale in my Etsy shop.
Pretty clever how you knit a tube by dividing the stitches so one side of the scarf fits through....pattern here if you want to try to knit one! Yep--it is from Martha Stewart's online...although this is a old pattern which has been around a longtime--and Martha doesn't mention that fact.
I like that it keeps my neck warm with out the bulky-ness of a longer scarf. Now back to knitting...the next one is light blue and oh! so soft...and I think I may try a little embroidery embellishment on this blue one.
I am an artist who was born and grew up in Alaska, as did my mother--my grandfather was a gold miner. I am recently returned from serving in the US Peace Corps as a volunteer on the Island of Dominica in the Eastern Caribbean. Some of the tasks I did as a volunteer : I taught art at a primary school, helped the school with development projects, volunteered with a youth group, and volunteered helping to organize and produce a local literary festival. I also worked for over 20 years on commercial fishing boats in Alaskan waters and lived for over 18 years in the Alaskan "bush" with no electricity and no cars. Alaska has shaped my view of life and culture, but so has raising two daughters, a life of making art in many mediums, and owning my own Used and Rare Bookstore. I guess I am somewhat of a vagabond who has done many things in my life--deckhand on a fishing boat, bookseller, nanny, chef,
administrative assistant in a college
dean's office,mom (that is a job!) but I always come back to artist.
