>Make-It Monday – New scarf/neckwarmer/cowl

28 Mar

>One of the main problems with the last one I made was that it was too itchy. I’m hoping I can soften it up when I wash it, but for now I can’t actually handle wearing it. So I’m trying again with a really simple stockinette stitch/cable in a merino wool silk blend. It’s super soft and smooth, and I’m digging the sheen the silk adds to it. Can’t wait to finish this one up and get a bit of use out of it before summer weather relegates it to the closet!

So far it’s coming along well – though I did forget to hold the cable in the back for one of the centre stitches so it twists the wrong way – but I’ve decided to pretend it was on purpose and make it into a motif by alternating for a waving cable! Here’s how it’s going so far:


(That’s Opie in the background.) I’m about halfway done now, so I’m hoping to finish it in the next week or so. Last night I slept funny and now my shoulder is all fucked up, so I’m probably not going to get much done this weekend, though!
