Rings And Things In Wool


So, the scarf is finally finished. And it´s really nice to put this yarn behind me, and the scarf around me. I ended up with a whole skein of greens and black that I took out. 100 grams right in the bin. Zauberball is not recommended! The color shifts happens because the yarn is varigated.

As I see the scarf finished I think it looks ok. But, a bit too dark. But the tassels makes it a little more colorful - so I´m wearing it with great pleasure.

After all it took a lot of hours and patience. And now I´m happy I didn´t frogged it.

That beeing said, it actually looks good and it has a nice warm feeling.

And a little halo makes it rather soft.

And a halo is alway a nice thing to wear - LOL!! Oh, and it´s visible...

I blocked it quite hard and that made the pattern look better.

I knitted my name on it as well as the year 2011. It is not that visible, but that´s just fine.

The scarf is 2.5 meter long and 12 cm wide. If you want to know more about this project you can read the story on Ravelry.

Let your halo glow - and have a light and lovely weekend!
