Another Zigzag




It was a very low key weekend. Plenty of rain though. I finished the Grape Fiesta Scarf but I guess I'll have to steam it before it will stay flat. The scarf wants to fold in from the edges so it ends up looking about half as wide as it really is. I think it's a tension thing between the ribbed edges and the stockinette center. So when I get around to it I'll press it and see what happens.

I'm in sort of a use up the odds and ends kind of mood. I started this Zigzag scarf in order to use up two almost full skeins of Brown Sheep Nature Spun. I've made several of these scarves using a self-striping yarn. This time I'm alternating colors every two rows. It's a good take along project, if you don't mind chasing the yarn all over the place.

Oh, Larry, I LOVE this color combination!!! I made one of these zig zag scarves, and I think seeing yours, I'll do another one.

Very nice, I really like those colors together. Good way to use up the odds and ends for sure.

I love the colors you are using here too. I have a real purple and green thing going on right now. It is my favorite color combo for baby stuff.

Larry,

Beautiful scarf, and great colors. You just amaze me with your knittig speed, I tell ya. I haven't finished anything this year, and in fact, haven't even cast on anything yet. Someday.

Btw, I have a pic posted on my blog of the yarn I'm offering as a prize for my contest.
