And We Have a FO and a Half FO…

We have a finished scarf!  The scarf is about 66 inches long.  I wasn’t really sure how long it should be.  I didn’t want it to be too long & I didn’t want it to be too short.  So I kinda decided 66 inches would be a good length.

Just to recap, this is the Dapperly Dashing Scarf & Hat pattern  by Stormy Tetreault.  I loved the pattern it was simple & fun & the pattern looks great!  It’s not a simple rib or exciting cables, but the pattern keeps the hat & the scarf interesting.

I do have to say when I started knitting the scarf I was stumped by the “wool forward” stitch.  I searched You Tube & found a couple of instruction videos, I watched them, watched them again….and I said to myself, hmmmmm  that looks a lot like a yarn over.  But I still wasn’t sure that I was understanding the stitch correctly.  So I googled again & read a few posts about the difference between wool forward & yarn over, which to me seemed very similar.  I decided that I would just go ahead start the pattern & see what happens.  So, when I got to the last 3 stitches I moved the yarn to the front & slipped the last 3 stitches.  It made a very nice edge.  I really liked the way it came out.

I love the set & I hope the recipient loves it as much as I enjoyed knitting it.

We have a sock!  LOL  1 sock done!  And the great part about it is that it fit!  It may actually be a smidge big, but since they are house socks that’s ok!  And he loves it!  I have cast on & started sock 2 so hopefully that will be done in the next week or so!

I hope to finish comfy sock II within the next week and then I hope to finish my afghan.  But I am wanting to get started on another pair of socks & perhaps another hat & scarf set…  LOL

  1. That set looks great! I really like the edge on the scarf. I have a hard time making nice, neat edges.

    Can’t wait to see the finished pair of socks! I admire people who don’t fall victim to Second Sock Syndrome. 🙂
