Have you seen a sky scarf in action?
Totally new to me idea that somehow said, “you must try this for 2012”.
So I am.
And because for the first 4 days of the year I tried to knit and let’s just say EPIC FAIL, I am doing this in Tunisian knit stitch with an afghan hook and 3 shades of blue and a grey. I may add others, but this seems to be enough colors to match the sky just about every day. I’m not getting technical here, just ball-parking it. Since right now it seems that Wednesdays will be the wool-eater updates, I am thinking I will be updating my progress on this scarf on Fridays. I just KNOW y’all wanna see how it looks every week with a whopping 7 rows of new stuff added. Like it is soooo important to show you how the sky has looked in western Iowa for the week. 🙂 OK ~ no need to squeal ~ maybe I’ll just do a post every 3rd or 4th Friday instead. And somehow, I just think 365 rows will make it a TAD longer than I really need it to be. Maybe I’ll stop somewhere around September…we’ll see.
So, if you want to know how I am making this::
It’s 4 colors of blue and grey (or however many you want)
an afghan hook
about 25-30 stitches wide, your choice of number of stitches and type of stitch (I’m doing 26 Tunisian knit stitches)
everyday you look at the sky at some point and guesstimate which color to use and before you go to bed, make 1 row
at some point you say ~ DANG this thing is just about long enough so you stop
and then when we stop, we’re going to make a cute border stitch (as yet to be chosen by you or me or whomever)
join me…or don’t join me…but secretly I hope you do
if you do join me, I really and truly expect links to your stuff in the comments 🙂 on Fridays too!
Oh, and btw ~ the penny arcade jacket has been done for 3 weeks or so, but my photographer is a slacker and hasn’t helped me get it ready for posting. And also btw ~ it feels like an EPIC FAIL as well. You will probably laugh as hard as I did when I put it on for the first time. I’ll share it this weekend if I can get him to pick up the damn camera and show me a little love.
Thanks for stopping by 🙂
