FO Friday

A finished object! I started this great scarf last fall in case the Redskins football game was cold. That weekend ended up being gorgeous so I wasn't in any hurry to finish. Then I misplaced the pattern and messed up so I had to rip it back a bit. I know, 'excuses, excuses!'  I just finished it because I needed the needles for another project.

     Pattern:  Misti Chunky Ribs & Ruffles from Misti International
     Yarn: Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick & Quick in Claret (I used about a skein and a quarter)
     Needles:  US size 11

It's a really easy pattern to memorize, and a good way to learn how easy it is to make ruffles by simply doubling the stitches. I think this scarf packs a big punch with just a little effort.  Once you're past the ruffle, its only 15 stitches per row, so it goes quickly. 

And here's a little memento from the game last fall!  I'm on the right in my Bruce Smith jersey (Bruuuuuuuce) and my friend Katrina is sporting her burgundy & gold feather boa.  She is a very girly-girl and not the type you'd expect to have fun at a football game, but she knows almost as much about football as I do!  And that's saying alot for a woman. 

Now that I'm in Tampa, I suppose I'll need to do pewter and red instead of burgundy & gold. I think the scarf may end up going to charity!


  1. Hi Ellen.. that is such a nice scarf.. don't pull it out.. I live in Clearwater and we actually had a cold winter last year.. really, it got into the 30's and I pulled out all the clothing in my trunks and wore them for the first time in 6 years!
