I have started a new scarf to remind me to aim for the stars. To avoid seeking those that makes a room dark and cold. And to never think that anything is impossible.
So, back to that knitting. A while ago I saw a project on Ravelry and knew I had to knit something like that. Since I had the yarn Delight from Drops in my stash I have finally picked it out and added some more yarn to it. The stash is a constant all the time. This variegated yarn surprised me.
It has a rather bad reputation being a sock yarn. But in spite of some splitting it knits up nice and the colors are lovely.
I was a bit uncertain about the white - often white has a tendency to make a garment less alive. If a garment can be alive - maybe it is to a knitter? LOL. But this works ok. What do you think???
Anyway - the pattern is from the really fun knitting book Kiri Kari. It is written in estonian and I do not understand a thing.
But the projects are such an inspiration and charts are universal. Pigs with stranded pattern and hand puppets with patterns from very old estonian mittens.
That is where I found the star pattern. It is an easy and not too mindless knitting. I cast on 120 stitches for the scarf.
I love knitting this scarf. I happen to put stranded scarves on tiny needles on top of my list of favorite knitting.
I have added a feather and fan edge to the scarf and it seem to work. So here we go - in about two meters it will be done. And with so much rain, fog and cold weather it seems more like autumn. And knitting time!
Aim for the moon. If you miss, you may hit a star
