Rrrruffles have Rrrridges


I finally finished the Ruffles scarf from the "Scarf Style" book. I think it turned out really well and should be pretty versatile for wearing. I have it wrapped once and tied in front. I used Patons SWS yarn a soy wool blend that comes in a lot of really cool colors. I think I used two or three skeins. Next on my hit list to become a FO is my Kevat shawlette. I made a little progress on it last week and I am about to tackle it again as soon as I finish this post. What to make next? I probably should start my Fiber Trend felted clogs but there are always scarves calling out to me like fiber sirens "make me".... I also did a little yarn recycling this last week. I took a perfectly hideous and ill fitting early 90's sweater that was made out of a perfectly good variegated mohair wool blend and unraveled the entire thing. Did I say mohair? Took some time and patience but the hard work paid off in about 800 yards of perfectly re-usable wool. I am contemplating reincarnating this fiber into a "Cozy" wrap. Off to hit the needles and hopefully I'll be posting another FO soon!

Very nice - love the colors. Don't let anyone see your felted clogs - I'm going to be starting my 7th pair as a gift who eyed and begged me after seeing me wearing mine.

That looks great! I've been looking for SWS but haven't been able to find any. Now that I see your FO, I figure I haven't been looking hard enough.

LOL at your "trivial pursuit" comment!

Very nice! I love SWS.

Great idea with unraveling the sweater, even if it was a lot of work. Can't wait to see the wrap.

What a great looking scarf, well done.

Sounds like you are doing a lot of knitting at the moment, it is too hot here at the moment so my knitting is progressing very slowly ;)

Oh wow, that scarf is so pretty!
Ripping mohair sounds scary though...

Ruffles came out great! I love the colors you used. Is the SWS soft?

I think my Mom is now sold on handknit socks, so I better get on to her next pair.
