WIP Wed: Daniela

Standard

Eternity Scarf!

For those of you just tuning in, I’m working on a new design, the Daniela Eternity Scarf. New designs always take a little bit longer to knit, so it’s pretty slow going. Two days ago, I got to what I thought was half way through the pattern, decided that I didn’t like it, and ripped. Woops. I’m almost back  to where I was before, and I think that I’ll like the finished effect a lot better. Basically, I got rid of the border, and now just do the stitch pattern twice. I think this will provide more flowy-ness, making the ribbing a little less jerky. I guess we will see after I block the finished object 🙂

But, besides that, the project is going really, really well. The yarn, Knit Picks City Tweed DK, is so light and fluffy, with just a little bit of a halo, that I was afraid that there would be problems ripping. There weren’t, and I was even able to pick up the stitches on the second row instead of ripping all the way back to the begging. Trust me, I was avoiding having to cast on over 190 stitches. Such a pain.

That’s about all that’s going on in my knitting world. My attention has been stolen (just a wee bit) by classes starting up. I had my first this morning, and it was so nice to see some of the people in my program (education) again! I ended up having lunch and spending most of the afternoon with them, which severely cut into my knitting time. Still, if I’m almost half way down with the eternity scarf, I think that I’m doing quite well. But if you want to read any other (cough, longer, cough) WIP posts, check out Tami’s!
