scarf + gibson
i promised i'd be talking about knitting, and it's time to update my ravelry projects. i finished this wool scarf at the beginning of summer and despite my bad timing (wool scarf + summer heat) i have worn it quite a bit over the last couple months. i will say i am excited for the cooler weather to use this scarf for the intended purpose - to keep me warm!
i really loved this pattern even though i had to get used to paying attention to what i was knitting. i'm in the habit of knitting mindless rows of stockinette for sweaters. for months, this project went everywhere with me. the stitch pattern was easy to memorize after a couple rows, but i printed out one of these just in case i'd forget or lose my place. i used my all-time favorite lion brand fishermen's wool. i love that it's more of a dk weight and that you can get so much, or all of a project done on just one skein. this scarf took a little less than a skein.
two more unrelated things: simple is an understatement - a hairstyle that literally only took me 20 seconds, and a Bonnie Raitt cover that I know my mom's gonna love.
