I just had a blinding flash of the obvious... Since this is knit in halves and grafted, I'm gonna knit both at the same time, thereby insuring that they are the same length... Idea


I am doing that anyway I do everything in two's these days, gloves, hats, sleeves. Very Happy

Here's mine so far. I haven't been working on it much because I have a couple of 'have tos' to finish. I think the yarn is a bit thicker than Aran weight because it's going to be quite a bit wider than the pattern says ( but that means it'll knit up quicker Very Happy ).

The colour looks better knit up than in the skein too. It's a not quite solid peachy/terracotta sort of shade.

The colors are all so nice. Sorry you had to frog GA. Now I wish I had thought of the obvious and done both halve at once Embarassed That's okay though, loving knitting the pattern.

GA and Yvonne, your scarves are looking lovely. I am on pattern repeat 6. I'm working at it here and there. I have a bit of a round robin going with all my OTNs.

I am on the 7th repeat but doing two halves together so I guess that would be 14th. I am not keen on the wool. It's Patons Aran 65% wool and 35% acrylic. It feels a bit rough so am hoping it will soften in the wash. I did think of ripping it out and trying another wool, but then would have the problem of what to do with this. The colour isn't great either it looked a lighter shade online, but is a bit darker. I will carry on with it and see how I feel when it's done

That's me... I have the Murano, the Aimili and the Party Scarf... I rotate among them...

Then I have the 'blue blob' that I work on with the morning news, and ES's socks that I work on at bedtime with an audio book...

ES wants to know if the socks go back to regular shape once washed. He wore them yesterday and was all upset because they were stretched out. Told me I had to ask. He didn't believe me. Smile

Yes.. they do... and the knit should tighten up a bit with washing, too...

Those will stretch out a bit more because of the bamboo in the yarn...

Finish it up and wash it. If you don't really like the color, gift it to someone who would be pleased to have a handknit from you. Smile

I printed the pattern, but I guess I've got too much going right now to join in with you all on this one.

Yvonne, I just LOVE that color. Very pretty.
