holiday knitting: ruffles

At last, I can start sharing some of my Christmas knitting with the blog!



Unfortunately, this is the best and only picture I've got of this Just Enough Ruffles scarf, which I will be gifting this afternoon. It's for a singer I've been working with for the past six or seven months. A couple of weeks ago she was really admiring my Cedar Leaf Shawlette, so I decided to knit her something similar for Christmas. This is my third time knitting the Ruffles scarf! I have so many other patterns, I ought to branch out a little, don't you think? Still, when you're knitting for other people, you've got to stick to what works.

Pattern: Just Enough Ruffles by Laura Chau from Cosmicpluto
Yarn: Berocco Lustra (50/50 merino/tencel in worsted weight), about 1.5 skeins. This was my first time knitting with Lustra. I liked it, but I'd never use it for anything getting heavy wear. The yarn is soft, but delicate, and all the tencel content makes it stretch out of shape really easily. The drape is beautiful for this scarf, though, especially after a soak in warm water.

I do want to knit that pattern - and a perfect yarn choice - tencel does stretch out, but the drape is great.

Revknits, this scarf is kind of addictive. It goes so quick until you increase to 600 stitches, but by then you're so close to the end you can't stop!

That is just a beautiful scarf. I've knit 2 Cedar Leafs, so I think I may make one of these for a gift. It looks like it might go a little faster without the leaves. Although -- 600 stitches is a lot!

Or is it: It's 10 rounds of a sock leg with 60 stitches. It doesn't sound too bad that way, does it?
