A Tale of Two Scarves....

...and very long ones they are. First is Creamy Peaches. Knitted in using 3 balls of Zara on 7mm needles, this scarf is a delight to knit. Soft to the touch, this scarf starts off with 28 stitches, knitted in the following pattern *k2, p1, repeat from * until last stitch k1. It became extremely long as all 3 balls of Zara was used up. I only casted off after the last ball almost finished. Very happy with this.^^

Next is Meeting Lines. This scarf is an experimentation. I was inspired by a Grinasco yarn that I've seen before which was a blend of pink and grey. However, I wasn't into the yarn composition, so I decided to buy 2 similar colours and blend it. I knitted this with 2 balls of Jaeger Extra Fine Merino Chunky in grey and 2 balls off Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran in dusty pink. I knitted the 2 yarns together on a 12mm needles, casting on 8 stitches. After casting off, I picked up the side stitches and knitted the other way just to see how it looks. Finished with fringing, it captures the softness of both yarns, and hopefully presents an interesting effect when worn! ^^
