WIP Post: Anthro-Inspired Scarflette


I haven't blogged this one yet, despite its being in existence for over two months, because I thought it would be more of an instant gratification project.  Turns out I was wrong, as shinier lace and sweater projects have cast it into the shadows.  I recently picked it up again so I could finish something - anything - but the straight knitting part is driving me nutty.  This is in large part due to the pattern, which is sort of sketchily written and forgot integral information like how long to make the neck part of the scarflette.  I realize that most people can just infer that, but it was weird to finish the shaping at the little petal, establish the wider straight part of the neck, and have the next direction tell me to k2tog all the way across the row.  Ah well - free pattern, cute result.  I can't complain.


The yarn is Madelinetosh Vintage, a worsted weight yarn with a lot of bounce.  I love working with it and would definitely consider it for my next worsted weight sweater.  Also, this pink is the exact shade of sakura flowers in the spring.  Now I just need to finish the damn thing...
