Scarf of the Day: No. 25

Scarf of the Day: No. 25

Today was filled with baking in my house. We’re getting ready for Thanksgiving so we made 6 pumpkin cheesecakes.

No they’re not all for us. My dad and brother are each taking one into work and one is for the neighbor. We’ll still have an extra, just in case.

I also made the double crust for my first attempt at a homemade apple pie. I’m too tired tonight to finish it, so first thing in the morning.

Now to why you’re really here, the scarf of the day. Its another cowl.

It’s an arm knit cowl that I made when I made my blanket, in my very first blog post.

I like it but don’t wear it that often. As you can see I have very many scarves and some get less attention than others.

How have you been getting ready for Thanksgiving?

Today’s scarf is a pseudo-cowl. It’s another Enterlac piece that I made.

My first blog post about Entrelac can be read here, my very first Scarf of the Day. This wasn’t really a pattern in the book but just the tutorials in the beginning included how to do Entrelac in a triangle.

I had bought three skins of Lion Brands Hometown USA, I knit something up but didn’t like it. So when it was all done I undid it and made something else.

I ended up not liking that either so I undid it and made this instead.

I love the way it ended up and how the colors helped enhance the pattern. Sometimes it takes a couple of tries to get something right.

Have you ever finished a project just to undo it and start over again?

Today’s scarf is not a scarf but a cowl.

I made this one a couple of years ago. I found a pattern online to knit it in the round so I decided to use this pretty purple yarn I had.

Now you can’t really see the pattern because the yarn has a little fuzz.

I also cast it off too tight so it’s difficult to get on and off. So if I wear it, it stays on.

Today’s scarf is more of a cowl. And this I knit on a loom instead of by hand.

I got into loom knitting when I was in high school as a way to make scarves quickly. Casting on and casting off was difficult for me but eventually I got the hang of it and even got the whole set.

I had a big skein of this coral type color in my stash so I decided to loom knit it on one of the biggest ones. So when I ran out of yarn and it was very long I decided to make it into a cowl and seam up the back. I even put a twist in it.

It’s luxurious and warm. And it’s nice because I can pull it up to me ears if there’s a chill in the air.

This image is more true to the actual color.

Have you ever tried loom knitting?
