YOP Update

Another week over, they are flying by now

With my brothers wedding yesterday and the rest of my cold, which I ended up going to the dr over, I didn’t get much knitting done.
My shawl went down a treat with it being loved all round the wedding group.
I did a small amount on the dishcloth I’m going to show you and that’s all.
This week sees me return to the Harry Potter scarves with a vengeance as the weeks are ticking by and I will also be starting to finish off the last of my dishcloths that are needed as part of some Christmas present boxes.

Here is the Harry Potter scarf so far and after reading all your advice, thank you very much, I’ve opted to do the full length as stated in the pattern, nothing worse than too short a scarf.

This is the dishcloth I’ve been working on and today should finish this off.

Until next week,
Happy Knitting,

    Please don't think this is a dumb question (I ask dumb questions *laughs*) You are making the scarf a tube? I have not tried that and think my knitting a scarf would go a lot faster if that was standard… is it? Or is it just the pattern?Or am I just seeing that wrong?I love it, it looks so nice and thick!

  2. I think you'll be glad you opted for the full length scarf; after all the work it'd be a shame to have it too short! The dishcloth is very cheery!

    Cris, there is never a thing as a dumb question…Yes this scarf is knit in a tube, its to prevent the edges from turning or rolling in on themselves…its an extremely quick knit as its just a knit stitch, whats taking me ages is trying to get to it and its so thick and warm, I think it will turn out quite cosy. 🙂

    Its the same question I asked too when I first saw it, I'd never seen a scarf as a tube, but then I guess you sew the ends together when it's done? Lovely and cosy. It's a pain to realise that you will have to go the long haul, (making the scarf longer) but I'm sure once resigned to it, it will happen soon enough! I'm not surprised that your shawl was admired it is lovely and you made it yourself which is out of most people's league.Glad your cold is better….full steam ahead now to Christmas! Your new dishcloth is a great pattern, how many more to go?

  5. I absoloutely loved your shawl, beautiful design. colour and execution.I love the tube scarves too. It was seeing an obscenely pricey cashmere tube scarf at an outlet store that helped me knit "one more thing" after the never-ending baby blanket. Ha. Your colours are beautiful!

  6. Your knitting looks fabulous Ruth! So glad everyone enjoyed your shawl also.

    Congrats on the success of you shawl–and good choice on the scarf length. I love your dishcloth pattern and would love to finish some up for Christmas surprises too. Actually I need to stop the projects I am working on and get busy on some Christmas stuff! Yikes-the weeks are flying by.*Smiles*

    Just knew your shawl would be loved by all! Glad the wedding went off well (don't you ever get a vision that someone *will* decide to stand up and say "I Object!" 😛 )The scarf are looking lovely too.Hope you feel better soon!
