long time no blog...

Sorry I've been a bad blogger lately... seems a tough rehearsal schedule coupled with the stomach flu make for unproductive knitting...

Anyway, here's the finished My So-Called Scarf

I blocked it and added two rows of single crochet around the edges to help the funkiness I encountered with this pattern; namely the diagonal slant of the rows, and the loose cast-on and cast-off edges. Also, because of the color differences, I had to alternate skeins every 2 rows (I HATE doing that), which meant the tensions of both lengthwise edges were not exactly the same (also fixed by the crochet edge).

I do like how the pattern looks, and it's a pretty long scarf; worth it for just 2 skeins of Manos! Once I got the rhythm of the stitch pattern, it was a fast knit. Besides, the bf likes it. Yeay!


  1. I always saw this pattern from the right side. I didn't realize it's so different on the back side. It's lovely with the manos yarn and the edge is clever!

  2. I'm sorry to hear that you haven't been feeling well - I hope everything is okay with you by now!
    I totally love your scarf, it turned out so amazingly gorgeous! The crocheted edges are an awesome idea, I often do this as well just to tidy up the edges, and it works perfectly!
