Improvising A Scarf

I’m currently working on my first knitting project of the new year.

I’ve ended up improvising a pattern, because the patterns I tried didn’t work with the yarn (I’m using this yarn [link].)  I tried the star stitch, because that one is said to work well with thick-and-thin yarn, and all I got was hand cramps and frustration.  I thought about knitting a drop stitch scarf, since I only have 220 yards, but the fuzziness of the yarn would make that more of a mess than it’d be worth.

Right now it’s a simple 2×2 rib stitch, knit lengthwise because I’d already cast on 130 stitches when I’d realized that drop stitch probably wouldn’t work with this yarn.  It’s a simple knit, and so far I’m enjoying seeing how the varying texture and colors work together.

      • I used to be on there loads when I was active in the very geeky but incredibly fun Harry Potter Knitting and Crochet House Cup, but it’s been a couple of years since I’ve participated as I just stopped knitting and crocheting completely. I’m trying to get back into it again as I miss the meditative aspect.
