Go Green

As much as I hate big needles, I have to say that they are great in times of need. We were having a friend over for dinner that has recently gone through some bad times and I wanted to make her something warm and cozy. So, I dug through my stash and pulled out two skeins of Blue Sky Bulky and some borrowed needles. Viola! A scarf in under an hour. (Yes, ANOTHER SCARF ON THIS BLOG!) I am so thrilled that she loves green as much as I do :)

Pattern: Plain ol' garter stitch with some fringe on US35 needles
Yarn: Blue Sky Bulky in color #1017
Measurements: Approximately 75" long with 7.5" fringe
Started: February 6, 2006
Finished: February 6, 2006
Other Details: Knit on size US35 needles, this took about an hour to knit! I needed a quick fix project for a friend who was having a bad day. I added in some Kidsilk Haze in Meadow to the fringe to give it a little something!

US35? I've never seen needles that big. Wow. But the scarf is very cute and I love the simple and snuggly quality. You're a very nice friend.

The scarf is gorgeous, and many thanks for that Griffindor stripe. It arrived yesterday. My daughter the HP nut can't wait to have it knit up into socks.

Beautiful scarf. I love the fringe, the added kid silk haze really adds a nice touch. I hope your friend loves it.

Sometimes dealing with crazy big needles are a worthy trade-off for a cute and fuzzy scarf. :) And luckily the knitting goes fast, so you don't have to put up with the big needles for long.

I love the bulky garter scarf - simple and fun. All about texture!

Speaking of green: I finished the Hourglass. We can be twins now! ;) Thank you SO much for sending the leftovers from your sweater. It really helped!
