Ever Made.

Have you ever tried to make a NON-Lace scarf out of sock yarn? I'd like to make a scarf for Mike and I'd like to use this yarn. I've cast on 60 stitches and am doing K3,P1 across ... but I'm now thinking (on size 2 needles) that this will take forever and be nothing special. Does anyone have any experience with non-lace scarfs out of something so fine?


  1. yes. You will finish next year and wonder why you spent so much time on it. Find a nice worsted for him.

  2. There are a bunch of fingering-weight scarves out there with more pattern oomph, but with the handpaint, I'm not sure that you'd see the pattern much. Are you 100% sold on the yarn?
