The Lovely Scarf


Barb gifted me some lovely yarn this summer and with it I made this lovely scarf.
I used the chevron scarf pattern from Last minute knitting gifts. It was the perfect choice for this yarn. Grace is a blend of blue, greys, purple, and a bit of orange. It is a bamboo blend so it feels silky. Very lovely.

It did take me awhile to knit. I kept this project in the car at the beginning of the school year so I could work on it while waiting to get the kids from school. Then I would work on it in between other projects when I wanted something simple or transportable. I finally finished it after taking it to a conference where I knit on it all day! I was surprised when I got home to find out that I was still a few inches shy of 77 which is what this pattern calls for. I cranked out a couple more inches and then blocked it. Blocking allowed it to grow to 88 inches! I am able to wrap it around my neck a few times which is perfect.

I love this knit. Thank you Barb for picking me up some great yarn. Your kindness and generosity is something I'm trying to imitate.

I love when a project sneaks up on you and nearly finishes itself!
