I meant to knit Mr. Ink’s mom a scarf for Christmas. I decided on a clapotis, because I figured it would be a fun little knit I could work on anywhere. Except….I got to the decreases and realized it wasn’t much more than a neck warmer. It wasn’t going to be scarf length AT ALL. I realized this a couple days before Christmas, at the same time that the bathroom walls were coming down.
Leaving me no time at all to do anything about it except rip back and try something new in the new year. I gave her a card for Christmas, with an “I owe you” message.
With the bathroom done, and me having a bit more knitting time, I started that scarf. I chose the Railyard Scarf, as it looked simple and like it might lend itself nicely to the chosen yarn.
I like it! The pattern is easily memorizable and repetative, and the colors aren’t doing terrible things to the scarf. This is a MUCH better option and I am glad I chose it. All that needs done now is just to knit until I have no yarn left.
