Yes. The beard was ridiculous and tacky and embarrassing. But today I will redeem myself! Another Sweet Dreams from Boo Knits! I love this pattern and will definitely make more (at least two or three more for sure).
At last year’s Yarnover, I bought a skein of Seda Sock in color Shiny Penny by The Grinning Gargoyle. What a stunning color! Copper and butterscotch and gold. It shimmers because of the 50-50 blend of silk and merino. My tres knitworthy daughter celebrated her birthday last week so I thought another scarf would be perfect. She wears her black Sweet Dreams CONSTANTLY.
I presented this to her at dinner the other evening with family. Lots of oohs and awwws. Yay! Plus she wore it to work and got many compliments. A winner.
I made this in a weekend with 300 yards of fingering weight yarn. It really felt great to see some fast results! Blocking is easy because you just pin the long point. LOTS of bang for the knitting buck!!
