1  The scarf that love hated in Knitting: Completed Projects by itsmesosa on: March 01, 2006 11:20:50 AM
A few a you may remember a topic when I started in "Discussions and Questions" entitled "Atrocious Color Choices." In it, I gave the whole background story about how my friend wanted me to knit the ugliest scarf known to man. With a Canadian flag embroidered on it at some point. Well, after working on that thing for two weeks (I couldn't work more than an hour on that thing without gagging, and kept ripping it out - no joke, the first time I cast on, this scarf was almost two feet wide), I presented him with this scarf. There were tears of joys, and discreet bouts of nausea behind convienently placed bushes. We've decided to call it the "Pretty Scarf" to its face, so as to not cause the scarf to get an inferiority complex.

Hope you guys enjoy this scarf as much as I did. Unfortunately, the picture got messed up on the transfer from camera to computer, but it's cool, the scarf is still mostly viewable (you're not missing out on much, trust me). This is me, modeling, my friend shall remain anonymous (unless you see him on the street, then you can attack him and that scarf and tell him that Sosa sent you).

Technical bits: I knit this scarf in the round on the biggest needles in my Denise kit, size 15's. I double stranded or tripled stranded all the yarn I used, unless I was going for a random "netty" part. This a great stash buster, and I suppose if you actually cared, you could make a scarf such as this look good. But ugly appears to be the new chic, so have at like I did. Lesson learned: duplicate stitching for the first time with triple-stranded yarn is not worth the time or energy. So I chucked the flag motif. My friends decided to help me by sewing on random ugly lace they found. Not only is this scarf hideous, it's also quite practical. It keeps my skinny little emo friend warm in freezing Montreal, through the double layers of acrylic and love.  Grin
