I am glad you all like our fall colors!! They are so great that you can’t take a bad picture this time of year!
And in line with the season- there is a lot of red going around. Red sweaters, red scarves, red leaves. My knitting group Sit n Knit New York, hosted a meet-up for the red scarf project! Ya! We are going to send a few in Jan 2007 as a group. I think we’ll have a bunch!!
I started my second one. (The first is my Irish Hiking scarf in Decadence from KP)
The second one is a Fibonacci scarf from stash. I love how these stripes appear random but have a very specific pattern. I am using 8 colors. ( I opened my red bag and dove right in). I CO 40 st with US8 and I made one sequence of 1,1,2,3,5,8,13. By the way, the numbers represent a garter ridge, which is 2 rows, knit all stitches. (thats 7 colors) and it came out as 8”. I figured a scarf could be 56” (dividable by 8), so I need 7 sections. I made 3 sections, next- with the 8th color I knit 8” and started going down the other side with the other 7 colors to match the first side (13,8,5,3,2,1,1). I have knit much further along but today is so cloudy, so I will not photograph the progress.See this little close up below, this kind of knitting is the mindless kind, (love it at times, don't you?) and on one occasion (late night knitting is not for me, or maybe CSI was too engaging) I must have purled these 4 stitches. A concession to the gods, admitting I am not divine…
