Oh the weather outside is frightful
But this yarn is so delightful
And since we’ve no place to go

It seems that winter is already upon us. A few days ago, it snowed and the white stuff was everywhere! We went from warm summer to icy winter without much autumn.
Instead of knitting a hat, I have found myself knitting, guess what, yet another seed stitch scarf! I am knitting this scarf out of the handspun Bonkers Fibers 100% Merino Superwash colorway Sea Jewels.
It spun up pretty quickly and easily. I think its supposed to look like different colors of seaweed with rich light and dark greens and a sort of rusty reddish brown. I like the way the colors are moving through this scarf too. It looks very attractive, maybe like something a man might wear.
I used size US 10 single point metal needles. I like wooden knitting needles better cuz these metal ones feel too slick; wooden needles are more grippy.
I am a bit proud of the fact that I managed to knit this scarf without either of the metal single point needles sliding out of my knitting loops. I would have had to rip out and start all over again since I can never manage to get the stinkin’ stitches back on the needles without them getting all twisted up, no matter how hard I try.
But even so, I still managed to finish the scarf. I started in early October and finished in early November. As long as it took, I thank God I am not attempting to earn a living knitting scarves, handspun or not. I would probably starve to death!
At least it looks nice.
