Waves Of Wool

There were several difficulties with the beginning of this scarf. First I thought there was an error in the pattern. I should have read it a bit closer... Gosh...

I also took some time to find the right colors for this scarf. The pattern suggested Kauni effektgarn in the colors EQ and EF. A short look on that EF color made me try to find another color. I thought I did. The first time I went for EZ. That ended up in a muddy color all together. I unraveled.

Next color was a solid magenta color in Finull yarn. It did not give the wanted effect. I throw it all away totally frogged. But one night, right before I went to sleep, I found out that I should try out that EF color the next day. I unraveled my second attempt and hit the needles again. And so far it actually looks good. I am so amazed by that. A fun knit!!

I am very excited to see how the colors will work when I knit more. here

    Så flott det blir. Noen ganger må man ikke gi opp, men prøve igjen.
    Mønsteret minner om havskum, men uten vrangmaskene.

  6. Så ergerlig med feil i oppskriften, men det ser heldigvis ut til at du har funnet ut av det. La oss krysse fingrene for at resten går av seg selv, for fargene du har valgt er som vanlig aldeles herlige. :)
