Knitting WIP - My Stripped Scarf Is Done!


Hello! Hello Friends,

Thank you very much for all your comments in my last post, that's so SWEET and means a lot to me! I would love to THANK YOU, thank you for the amazing bloggy friendship!

Remember my first knitting project WIP in the beginning of this year? Oh I can't believe it's over six months! The scarf WIP has been in my closet for months then! Finally I managed myself to get it done (phewww!!!), and here is how it turned out:

I knitted in the rounds with 5.0mm circular needles, worsted weight yarn, 60 inch long (not including the fringes).

I love the softy touch and the warm feeling as it was knitted in rounds. Take a closely look when it's folded:

This scarf will be a handmade gift for my honey's sister in July, she is living in a very cold place. I love it, so warm and happy to wear, hope it will make her warm too!

Sorry for uploading so many photos for one scarf, I'm so exciting and just love to enjoy pretty pictures of my knitting achievement here! Oh I have to say knitting is really another inspiration to me! :)

That's all for this post, wish you all a gorgeous new week ahead!!!

See you later!

it is realy great this scarf, and i was thinking about it all the time because i had seen it when you started it.
and i was currious how it would turn out because of the magic loop methode.
i think i will do the same whit some special yarn.
the baby sute i am making,is allso in the round, and you have to think about front and back pieces at the same time. pfffff.....
greetings

You are one talented and crafty lady. Sure seems whatever you put your hand to turns out beautifully. The scarf is lovely. I tried knitting years ago but just couldn't get the hang of it. I'll stick with simple crocheting. :) Best wishes, Tammy

Naturally Carol said...

I like the idea of knitting it in rounds as you get a double thickness. Your sister will be toasty warm now!

Lovely scarf - I'm sure it will be well received.

So beautiful, my friend! And, your honey's sis will love it so, knowing just how much love and friendship is in each and every stitch. Every time she wraps it around her neck, it will feel as though you are hugging her!

Amazing you have taught yourself to crochet and knit like an expert in such a short period of time!

Many blessings,
Donna

Eloise said...

hi! i saw your scarf and I've started working on a scarf like yours but in a solid shade. I'm wondering, how do you keep the ends from curling?

lovestitch said...

@Eloise: I knitted this scarf in the round, and to avoid the curl for the ends, I just simply added fringes as you can see in the photos. I even didn't block it at all!
Hope this helps. Can wait to see yours! :)
Best, LS
