And the clapper is done! Oh yeah…just in time to give away for Christmas. It’s so lovely and useful. You can use it as a tree skirt or as a mantle swag. You can wear it while eating fruitcake* or just as a scarf for warmth. What’s that, you want details…
Yarn: Morehouse Merino Laceweight, I’m guessing I used the equivalent of about 3 skeins
Needles: Size 5 (which is about a 7 to "normal" tension knitters)
This turned out to be a great, sproingy scarf to replace a well used one I’d knit for a friend a few years ago. For those who want to make a scarf type item, rather than a bigger shawl type scarf–GO FOR IT! Using the smaller laceweight yarn makes a great sized scarf and you don’t even need to change the pattern. I knit it as is and it worked out great. It’s a fun, portable little project…of course now I’m making one for ME in sportweight wool/silk periwinkle. Yeah!
*NOTE: The fruitcake is delicious–what the photo doesn’t show is me devouring half the loaf…that would have been to much sharing.
