Yarn: 2 balls KnitPicks Wool of the Andes in Blueberry
Needles: US 10.5 straights
Modifications: Since the pattern calls for a chunky weight yarn, and I was using worsted, I had smaller bobbles. And while I didn't cast on any more stitches than called for, I did knit more pattern repeats (11 for Piece A instead of 9, and 10 for Piece B). Basically I just knit each piece until I finished up a ball.
This really is a great pattern. So quick to knit and with results that look more complicated than they actually are - thus, a great gift! And this will be gifted to my mother-in-law at Christmas. I think she'll like the color, and because I knit it with bigger needles, it'll be a little airier (she lives in Santa Fe and thus doesn't need the warmest scarf).
Now, I haven't yet blocked the scarf, so it will actually be a bit longer and wider than what it is now. Which leads me to a problem. I have 3 scarves that I've gotten off the needles recently but have yet to block (this one, my Clapotis, and the Branching Out scarf that I finished ages ago). I don't know why I am so slow to block - maybe because I don't have the greatest blocking space? Or maybe because I'm lazy? Ah, who knows. One of these days, I'll have a blocking extravaganza. I'm just happy to be starting another project - I actually only have one thing on the needles now (an Odessa hat for my sister). The horror! Must start additional project...
