What was your inspiration?
The Knit Lab class and Stephanie inspired me to do this project even though it is more an exercise in process than it was a fancy project like the Keyhole Scarf. I'm so glad I decided to it!
What are you most proud of?
I just love the classic look of this scarf. The yarn I chose is super light weight yet extremely soft and WARM! I wear this scarf more than any of my others. It looks great just draped over any blouse or sweater. If you get hot it is light enough to roll up and stick in your purse - LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!
Wish I had a dress form to show it off proper ;-)
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Take care in choosing the right yarn. I'm beginning to learn how important yarn choice is for pattern, stitch definition, warmth, etc. Don't just go by 'looks' - think about why you are making the pattern and who will wear it.
