FO knitting

I did finish my knitting project the other night, but, I just didn't get around to taking photos.  I don't love the pictures I ended up taking, but hey, I can only do so much with the yellow hotel lighting!  ONE WEEK LEFT, lol.

This project is my 22.5 Degree Scarf found here on Ravelry.  This is the third time I've made it, but the first time I've done the cute little scallops-and I love them!  The thing is, this thing is done in garter stitch and it starts really quickly, and you're like "ohhhh, wow, this is gonna fly by, i love this lil 'ol scarf" and then...it takes freaking forever.  But it's cool, cause it's done now and I love it!  And a note, if you want to do the scallops, don't use the Ravelry link to the video cause it doesn't work.  Here's the correct one:  video!

scallops!

I've been wanting/needing a black scarf and actually knit one up using a lace pattern from a knitting book I have.  Buuuut, I'm really not a prolific knitter, and the edges were SO curled up, even after 2 blockings, it just pissed me off.  Frog city.  I decided to stray from the normal, long rectangular scarf and knit this pattern again and really glad I did!

 terrible pic, but can see how long it is on double bed

I used 3 balls of Trendsetter Yarns Merino VI.  I adore this yarn, it's soft, super squishy and soooo warm.  Highly recommend.  Seriously, I want to live in this stuff.

All in all, great mindless project.  If you know how to cast on, M1, yarn over, and cast off, you can do it.


tada!
