... having just enough ruffles

knitting

i'm glad that i'm cramming in as much knitting as possible into my two weeks. it'll be good to have some woolen knitted things to keep me warm through the winter.

just enough ruffles

so i'm very pleased with my new ruffly scarf, laura chau's just enough ruffles. i knit it up in a lovely greyish-pink manos del uruguay handspun wool. i totally heart manos del uruguay.

just enough ruffles

because you knit it lengthwise, and because you have to triple the number of stitches on the needles to get the ruffle, by the end your rows are 600 stitches, which makes it kind of a beast (and that increase row took me, like, forever!). but isn't it so pretty?

just enough ruffles

i should start knitting things for other people now, shouldn't i?

  1. Wow, look at you go! How lovely and warm that looks... you're cranking out knits like nobody's business, hey? Oh, and selfish knitting is a perfectly acceptable policy to which I adhere fairly closely! Thanks so much for the props in your last post, by the way. Have a great Monday! :)

  2. Yes, please! Start making things for others. I'd totally buy this scarf in teal or mustard.
