scarf #1

First scarf done. This one came out a little shy of the 6" width requested and a little longer than the 60" length. Hmm. Finished size is 5 1/2" x 63".

It cracks me up that these all come out different sizes when they are made exactly the same. The difference can be caused by many different things. The yarn is probably primary, of course. I imagine tension is slightly different for each as well.

Makes a good point for checking gauge and not letting too much time pass when working on a project where gauge matters. Even in a project where gauge doesn't matter for width or length you want it to at least be consistent within the project as an afghan which is slightly wider on the second half would not be as nice as one that is consistently the same width.

Kim Guzman's newsletter this week had a link to her baby Santa pattern. Here is the link to the blog post because you must see her little boy, so cute when he modeled the pattern and a handsome young man now. If you're quick, you might be able to whip this up for the special wee one in your life.

Working on scarf #2 with the two blue yarns. This time I'm using the Fibonacci numbers for my pattern.

Happy crocheting!
