Yo Em, what the hell is that? Other than AMAZING! Well, my dear readers, it is a scarf:
Woah! Woah! That is pretty dang awesome.
I had SO much fun knitting this one! I guess I should let you all in the magic of this scarf.
I used two sock yarns that I had languishing in the stash. The tealy-blue metallic yarn is Biscotte and Cie’s Clair de Lune. I loved working with it and it softened up as soon as I washed it. The dove gray yarn is Diamond Luxury Collection Footloose. It is one of my favourite yarns, not just because it has an awesome name, but because it is soft and bouncy and merino-y. Delicious!
Here is what I did. I cast on with the teal, knit 2 rows, switched to gray, knit 2 rows, repeat. When I hit my occurrence, I put in a short row. Just a simple wrap and turn (youtube video link). I didn’t bother to pick up my wraps on the next row, I’m just WAY too lazy for that and in garter stitch, it doesn’t make a huge difference (but trust me, if you are working in St. st you HAVE to pick up your wraps on the next row or it looks like garbage. It’s all in the video). Then I knit until I ran out of gray yarn.
I love it. And I love all the points it earned me!

And one last pic for good measure (it is also my favourite bit).
