FO - Red Scarf Project

I finished up the red (blue) scarf for the red scarf project. It has now been washed and dried (oh the fiber feels wonderful now). Norma had suggested washing and drying in the machine (which I normally don't do) - but it really made the scarf less sticky (from the silk I believe) and poof up more. It is wonderfully soft now. I know it looks gray in the photos - but it is really a nice heathered blue color.

Project Details:
7"x70" scarf done in 4x4 K/P[ pattern]. Took 3 full skeins of Rowan Summer Tweed [354 yards] (cotton silk blend). Thanks for giving me the yarn Avivah. I knit it on size 10 needles. I cast on August 16 and finished August 22 (7 days of knitting).

  1. It came out great - How fortuituous you had 3 skeins in the stash waiting for JUST such an occasion? :)
