Skinny Scarf...

the early worker has departed...
so for the last time this week
it's another very early
good morning to all
from me!
on a whim
i bought some lincraft electra ruffle yarn...
the shop assistant
kindly showed me and my friend
how to knit it up...
it spreads apart from it's initial centimetre 'til its about ten wide.
along the opposite side to the silver thread
there are loops which you catch and 'knit' with.
this is done on six stitches
and you carry on until the whole ball is used
and it makes a decent length skinny scarf.
i've finished it now
and it's about a metre in length,
it's looking a bit more ruffly than these pictures
and is light and pretty.
i have two more colours to experiment with
and can't wait to start on the next today...
they take about an afternoon to knit up.

happy birthday mum...
this one's for you!
i hope you find something to learn
or make something pretty today...

  2. Love the ruffly scarf, Carol! Speedy projects like this are fun to do! I liked your photos in the last post too....and I know what you mean about those moments of amazing and wonderful life can be, and how surprising the way things work out! I hope you have a lovely weekend...(and maybe a nice lie in??)

  3. It would take me ages to make this! I am not the best on knitting needles, much better on a sewing machine. Your mum with love it :)

  4. That looks like a lot of fun and I'm all for a speedy project. That's why I love knitting hats!!

  5. I've knitted with this yarn last winter - it was so much fun and I loved the results! Mine was a sort of strawberries & cream colour mix - I love the colours in this one too!

    Have a great day, and a lovely weekend!

  6. It looks so pretty Carol
    I'm not a knitter at all - but I'm tempted!

  7. I picked up some and looked at it in Spotlight the other day...wasn't sure how to use it so I put it down.. I should have asked and I too could have a beautiful scarf like yours. Well done. xxx

  8. Oooo it's gorgeous Carol, love that ruffly look, gives it a very fancy effect. I think your Mum will love it! xo

  9. Such a beautiful scarf; your mum will be thrilled!

  10. I love skinny scarfs - they can be worn year-round in so many different, pretty ways! I'm sure your mum will LOVE it!
    Have a wonderful day!

  11. So pretty and I love the color!! You mom will love it!! Happy weekend to you! xo Heather

  12. I have made quite a few of these scarves now and they are great for birthday and Christmas presents aren't they xxx

  13. Wow, thats really clever Carol! Its starting to get a bit chilly, so im sure it will get lots of use!! I have a new blog now after a bit of a break, hope you can pop over sometime!

  14. I've seen these about and think they're lovely - the yarn looked fascinating - perhaps I should put this on my things to do list. You've done a marvelous job!

  15. Looks very nice, may I ask what size knitting needles to use?

  16. I can't remember but the lady in the yarn shop helped me with that and as I recall it also mentions it on the little slip of paper around the ball of yarn. I hope you make a lovely one for yourself...they're very easy after the first couple of rows!
