After my first ever color changes.. and staring on the pattern repeat.. here is how the scarf looks.. hope to have it done soon
Yarn: Acrylic (standard cheap stuff)Needles: Boye Interchangable (size 7)
:cheering: Pretty painless, too, huh!
heh well I tried 3 differnet ways.. I would have to say the 3rd way was the best.. and it was the one I found here.. the duplicate stich color change and weave.. i've not weaved yet.. as I'm bad at that too... but practice.. of course..
well get 'er done Now I feel I'm ready for intarsia
:cheering: :cheering: Very nice, very nice
The scarf is looking fantastic! What yarn are you using?
laughs as I'm a bargin knitter.. I'm just using some acrylic.. I should be using a acrylic wool blend.. but.. shrugs nothing special.. as I can "handle" the itchyness of acrylic.. I don't mind.. and the kids wouldn't complain as I think they would just be happy to have the scarf.. but this one is FER ME
I know.. I'm a mean dad
Yes, I'm a mandated reporter--knitting yourself a scarf is right up there on the child abuse list! :rollseyes:
YAYYYYYYYYY! Great job!!! :cheering:
Yeah I'm gonna have to make the kids some.. I will probably make the son a Slytherian one.. might have to try and buy the utopia yarn to try it for him
Or some other nice type acrylic type of yarn
I'm no yarn snob, and use plenty of acrylic. I was just wondering about the yarn because the colors look good, and I've been thinking of making one for a young relative.
Ahh okay... well the red is MAinStay (Walmart) Soft burgandy.. and the yellow is RedHeart 0321 Gold
Only reason I used MainStay on the Red is that there were No RedHeart colors at the time I bought it that looked as good as that red..
:cheering: Looking good!!
Looks great so far
Thanks, Norman; it really is looking fantastic.
That red is gorgeous! I used Encore for mine and I had a hard time finding a "bronze," but I was deadset on the Encore. It's mostly acrylic. I'm thinking about trying a Hufflepuff one sometime in the future...I've yet to see many of those!
I confess. I used cheapo acryllic for my dd's Gryffindor scarf as well (first year). Now she wants a PoA Ravenclaw one. She says she is going to poke me until I make her one. She just doesn't realize that my needles can be sharp and I'll poke back!!! :roflhard:
It's very lovely! Now if only it wasn't in USC colors.....
Well in actuallity .. it's not supposed to be.. it's supposed to be in Gryffindor colors
Well then, that is just great!
