i have a couple of posts waiting to happen, but for the moment, i just want to tell you about this scarf i just finished.
i made a fibonacci sequence scarf for my grandpa!!! (who’s a math teacher, by the by) and i love it! i forgot how satisfying, warm, and squooshy a scarf garter makes! i haven’t made one in probably… (calculates)…. wow, at least five years.
i started this in july, hoping to have it done for christmas (er… at least it’s still cold out?). but it’s been a backburner project pretty much since it’s been cast on. i like to have a couple projects going that i pick up and put down in between other projects or when i’m frustrated by a project. i thought this would make a great movie-going project, but i kept dropping stitches (i got most of them back, but there was one i didn’t notice until i was a good six inches past it). and because of the fibonacci sequence striping, i constantly had to be counting my progress. so better tv watching knitting than movie going knitting.
pattern: er, my own. you know… garter bumps in a mathematically calculated number sequence.
yarn: cascade 220 doeskin heather (8012), probably about 2/3 of the skein. and berroco ultra alpaca in oceanic mix (6285) (which is gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous), i used maybe 1 1/10 skeins. i was a little annoyed when the first skein ran out 13 rows from the end. but hey! what can you do?
needles: US size 8 (5mm)
