As I mentioned the other day, I’ve been getting some serious holiday knitting done…and that means the chunky garter stitch scarf that is my latest addiction. It’s almost too easy to knit these up, so I’m making a whole bunch of them for everyone I know…
The “Lemongrass” One (pictured at the bottom of the above stack), was already gifted out to my friend Ashley, and another one will go to my friend Sarah since she said she “totes” wants one. O.k.!
I’ve been addicted to wearing the “Butterscotch” one because the color is quite perfect for the Halloweeny in all of us, and you’ve probably seen me out in it lately. Many a compliment abounded.
I don’t need to tell you how I make these; been there done that. Plus, it’s so simple I’m almost ashamed, but the yield is high and absolutely warm and gush-worthy. Remember! The key is bright colors, extra chunky wool, and honkin’ big needles (like Size 50, big).
The other night, meeting up with friends and former Herald alums, I convinced one of my good good friends Estban Miguel (who reviews and writes tracks of the day over at my first love, the music blog, Pulp and Circumstance, Juiced!), to model one of the scarves for Kraftworkin’.
And workin’ it he did.
