A friend from ravelry REALLY liked the bubble gum scarf, but it was a bit to skinny for her taste. It's about 5 1/4" wide. If I knew it would be that small, I would have added a few more stripes to the side.
So I went to the yarn store to look for more yarn, but there wasn't anymore. It was on sale, and it was such a good sale. When I went back for more "Beach" yarn, I saw one more skein and I almost got it but I knew I had too much yarn as it was, so I passed it up. Now I'm kicking myself!
Alas, life goes on and I dug through my stash and I saw these two, also from the yarn sale. The pink is the same pink from before. The other one is a nice mix of blues, purples, and teals. It's pretty close to the other one, well, not in a side by side comparison... but ti's an ombre! And it looks good with the bring pink!
In fact, here they are weaving up and I honestly think I like these better! You can see the design easier.
It's sett is 9 epi on a 10 dent reed.
I made almost 9" across in the reed, so it's weaving up to a little over 8". This is a perfect size for my friend! And, she likes it! Thank goodness!
But it was a chance worth taking because it can always go into the show. I'm sure there is a taker out there somewhere!!!
A scarf for everyone, and everyone has their scarf...
By the way, do you ever do this? Blur your eyes so you can kind of see it differently?
I do this a lot, and I like the method. It kind of blurs things together and you can almost see the bigger picture better.... or maybe it's just a "me" thing!
