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!
