Dominating Knitting

I finally made a project from the knitting book domiknitrix (that I “borrowed” from my friend Anna).  This book is part eye candy, part beautiful projects.  It may not be for beginners as some of these projects are complex and require quite an investment of time and money.  While I have day dreamed about making many of the projects here in, I just could not commit.

Then I found this amazing acid green yarn from Lion Brand and just bought one skein with a vague idea of making a scarf out of it.  It is too bright for anything big, I just wanted a little splash of that electric color for fall.  This bubble scarf was the perfect project so I gave it a go. The first couple of bubbles were tricky and I didn’t really understand the authors instructions on her type of increases and decreases ( I ended up just using my own tried and true method) , but once I got going it was fairly fast and easy. I actually like knitting on DPNs!

  1. Cool! Lately my feelings towards fashion could be summed up as “personal uniform + varied embellishments (aka accessories)” . Kind of a 1940’s idea. This scarf is a cool accessory. . .!
