This is a potato chip scarf. The reason why it is called that is because supposedly "you can't have just one."
I knit it from yarn I picked up in New Hampshire when I went to visit my friend Maureen last November, her local yarn store was an absolutely cool place and I'm jealous of their class schedule. So far she's taken a fair isle class, and entrelac too. Two things that I am dying to try!
Anyway...the scarf is pretty straightforward and only nine rows of knitting. It's a super-easy project that flies by til' row five, and you suddenly have over 300 stitches on your needles. It doubles every other row so you're binding off a ridiculous amount of stitches at the end. The bind-off took FOREVER.
So pretty, and such a soft wool. Too bad I can't wear it now, with this March heatwave! What a way to welcome in spring. If I was to become addicted to this pattern and need another, I'd choose a colorful cotton/silk blend.
Next on the needles: my first commissioned item! A hat for my hairdresser...coming soon to a blog near you. :)
