Another Stash-Busting Project: Bow-Knot Scarf

bow tie scarf 2

I made this Bow-Knot scarf recently from some black worsted-weight stash yarn that I had.

It was a very hot day when I had this photo taken, hence the inappropriate clothes worn with it. LOL 😉

I do think it will be very nice to wear for the winter though.

An easy project, would be perfect for beginners and didn’t take much yarn either.  Nice gift idea too!

If you’ve been looking for another stash-busting project for your own “yarn pile” you can check out the pattern here.

The only slight error I noted in this pattern, was on the first line that starts with: NEXT ROW, line should have read decreases NOT increases stitch. No biggie but if you’re new to knitting you might wonder about that. 😉

Happy Crafting and Knitting!

Happy Autumn too!  🙂

I’m happy with how it turned out.

If you are looking for a fairly easy beginner’s knit project, you might want to check this one out.

Now I just need something nice in black to wear it with this fall! 😉

You can read more about the background of making this project and also a link to order this scarf kit here.

Happy Knitting!

And speaking of knitting, if you’re making something right now, do share the details! 🙂

Fairly Easy Fair Isle Finally Finished!

Well, my Fairly Easy Fair Isle Cardigan is FINALLY finished! 🙂

I’ve been planning to knit and then knitting this sweater for a loooong time.

I had some issues with the pattern as I blogged about previously here and of course, the “button hunt” that I blogged about here.

Speaking of the buttons, aren’t these perfect?

Thanks again to Brenda. You found a perfect size and match.

And how hard it was to do just that. I did a LOT of searching for buttons myself, to no avail and had other people looking for me too. Amazing, how hard it was to find the right buttons.

Fairly Easy Fair Isle

In progress.

I decided to block it just like a wool project, to straighten out all the edges. Worked fine:

Back view. I even impressed myself LOL. 😉 :

Buttons, buttons, I’ve finally got the buttons. 🙂

Taaaa daaa….

I’m quite happy with how the sweater turned out.

Yes, I think it would have been even nicer in a wool yarn as the pattern suggested, but I’m ok with how the Jiffy looks, albeit not quite as lush as wool always is. I’m trying to use non-animal based yarns now, whenever possible, that’s why I chose Lion Brand Jiffy for this project.

I would attempt another Fair Isle knit in the future. An easy one that is! It was fun working with all the color yarns and I learned a lot as I progressed with this sweater.

It’s been so hot here, I haven’t even tried it on yet but I think it will fit just fine. Should be nice and toasty for Autumn.

Maybe good for a new avatar photo too! 😉

Happy Crafting!

PS: WordPress blogger ???

Anyone know how to keep line spaces in a post, when using WP? I put in spaces and when I come back to that place on the page, they are no longer there. I don’t know why this happens over and over, but it sure is annoying. 😦
