* floofy scarf

Posted on June 29th, 2005 by maitreya. Filed under Knitting.


My travel project this summer, knit on trains and planes all over the place. Slightly less than 1 skein Patons Divine, 10 mm needles, 15 stitches across, in garter stitch, of all things. I actually really like the way the garter stitch looks on it, not that you can tell from my fantastic photograph. Also, the needles are too big for it, so the stitches are nice and open and it’s going to stretch longer than it is now. I am keeping this scarf for myself in anticipation of the long Jersey winter, which doesn’t sound half bad about now.

    How does that scarf feel around the neck? Is it soft?

  2. Maitreya Says:

    It’s super soft and warm. It’s the only scarf I’ve made that I can actually wear. I’m a total convert to acrylic.

    i love patons divine! i’ve made a bunch of simple garter stitch scarves with that yarn and they always come out so nice and lacey with big needles. i have many colours of that yarn in my growing stash.

    ps. i’m not sure if i’ve ever left a comment before but i’ve been reading your blog forever and LOVE it! great job!

  • This recipe with white beans is probably my favorite farro salad yet. The creamy beans play a huge role in that, along with the sweet tender leeks and fresh parsley. But it's the chunks of salty, citrusy preserved lemon, a condiment often used in Moroccan cooking, that really takes this salad to the next level.
