I knew I had some silk and soy yarn that wanted to be this scarf. I dug through my odds and ends and came up with 4 different wool yarns to use for the center. I knew the cobbled together center might be a problem, but not to be deterred I jumped into this project with both hands and a size 10.5 circular.
The author suggested that felting can be an adventure, and what an adventure it was. First came the 70 inch I-cord and picking up about a million stitches on each side (okay it was more like 175 and the pattern said 300). Again I forged onward.
Once the knitting was done, I got a little stuck. As I have stated before we have had a hot water problem in the basement, so I had to wait for the washer to get fixed. Well, my lovely wife made sure I had my hot water. Once the washer was fixed with a pair of jeans and a Shout color catcher sheet, I threw in my pretty green scarf.
