new scarf

Okay, I have to confess. I ordered more yarn! LOL I am terrible! I so enjoyed working with the Stylecraft DK that I ordered more, even if it came from UK. There was free shipping over $50 purchase. My thought is to make a wider afghan... But you never do know ...

In the meantime, while waiting for that yarn, I have in mind to make a SHADA scarf with the other colors I have on hand. I have to get my stash down to make room for incoming and that is a scarf I've wanted to do. It is one of the longer scarves and used only in the one episode. I do not plan to work some backwards as the knitted pattern shows. I'm just going to follow the colors. My tickly thing is that DWS and WLK start and end at different points.

The SHADA is made up of bits of two scarves. Which scarf is first on the actual scarf, I don't know. I guess it depends on which way you look at it? In crochet, your stitches face a certain way so an experienced crocheter can tell where you began working. Not sure how it is in knitting.

Still some thought to go into it.

I've finished the scarf I was working on. It's a simple, straight dc scarf with a sc edging. Nothing fancy about it. :-) Finished size is 6 1/2" x 71".

Also, just as a side note, I decided to leave the Hook and Needle Club. Though I've gotten a few patterns that I would like to work again, overall I just haven't gotten the use out of it that I envisioned. In a few kits I used just the yarn and the cost for one or two skeins of yarn is not worth it. Then there is the time. I have less time now to pursue items that I can't use even if I might enjoy the challenge of it. At first I just changed my settings to receive a kit several months apart, but then I realized that things will likely not change in that amount of time so I gave it up. I still think it's a good club for those who knit and crochet.

Happy crocheting!
