Guys, I think I am done with this scarf. This is how much it has grown since I last blogged about it. See? It’s barely gotten any longer. And that’s my fault. I have neglected it. So many other fun projects going on! I think the truth is I just don’t want to invest another second in it. No hate. No vitriol. Just one big “Meh!” Besides realizing the fact that I am more of a cowl person that a scarf person, I have also come to the conclusion that a) I don’t have the attention span or project-dedication to do a long scarf anymore, and b) I am sooooooooo not into what the colors are doing here and would never actually wear this. Let me clarify: I love the colors, just not that weird almost ghost of an argyle pattern that’s going on there. The reason that the Noro works so brilliantly with this specific pattern/scarf recipe is because it is a striping yarn, not a variegated yarn. Hence, it stripes beautifully. It doesn’t pool or splotch or spread like icky oil slicks. I think I may try this scarf again, only using the Noro (Silk Garden, not Kureyon, since I find the Kureyon too scratchy) or a similar striping yarn. In the meanwhile, I’m frogging this atrocity and either throwing this yarn out the window or attempting socks with it yet again. Grrrrr!
In your shoes, I would have destashed a long, long time ago. That yarn can’t seem to make it work, you know??
Awww, I actually love the weird argyle ghost in the midst of those brilliant colors. But if it’s not doing it for you, then most definitely: rip away!
i love it too. (rule of thumb, if grumpy hates it, i seem to love it).>>what about a chevron scarf? it won’t go all argyle-y on you.
I think it’s for the best.
It just seems to glow! But you have to do what you want to do.
Yes, hooray for the cowl–such a better neck garment in the end…
