Sometimes it is simply best to fall back on a basic scarf pattern. Seed stitch (or moss stich) is not only simple, but produces a lovely pebbled texture and yields a flat scarf with no curling. Such was my choice for this scarf. It was great “on-the-go” knitting. I could even work on it in the movie theater. I love having a project that I can knit-by-feel. Incidentally Puss In Boots was quite a funny movie. The plot was a bit thin, but who doesn’t love two dueling Spanish accented cats? Kitty Softpaws you are adorable.
Ok, sorry. I wandered a bit off topic there. What I wanted to tell you about was my latest finished project. Knit with some leftovers from my Sunset Poet’s Pullover, this was a stash buster that also served as a gift for Avi’s mother. Yes. I did knit the poor woman a scarf. She was coming from a much warmer climate and I’m sure she wasn’t prepared for the cold. So I made her a scarf. I ran out of time though and his dad had to make do with a purchased scarf. Oh well. Maybe another time.
