Don’t get me wrong. I love this scarf. It’s stunningly beautiful. It still was a pain in the ass to knit it.
I guess I would’ve finished the scarf sooner if I hadn’t been in so much pain the past months. It was supposed to be the Christmas gift for my mom (cough). Unfortunately, I could only knit a few rows per day most of the time. To add insult to injury, the two row pattern repeat gets really boring over six balls à 140m of flimsy alpaca/silk blend yarn. On the bright side, it’s easy to learn and becomes a great mindless knit for TV/movie evenings! I love the simplicity and elegance of the design, but the knitting process wasn’t fun.
The yarn is a pleasure to wear. It feels soft and fluffy, and it’s surprisingly warm despite its delicate look! In hindsight, I should’ve made it a bit shorter because it’s a lot of scarf to deal with to be honest, but the opulence of the full-length piece kind of seduced me. I hope my mom likes it. She helped us a ton with our new apartment (she’s basically a genius at renovating), so I wanted to make something really special for her!
