Mrs. Darcy’s Scarf
January 15th, 2009 | Link
I mentioned the low-budget Masterpiece Theater serial of Pride and Prejudice was four or five episodes, right? So in addition to a scarf for Edmond, I had time to weave one for myself.
The yarn is Crystal Palace Waikiki, a slubbed cotton-rayon blend. 60 ends, 7.5 dpi reed, finished size about 6″ wide by 67″ long.
I’m happy with the loose weave and texture on this scarf, but considering its decorative nature I could have gone with something a couple inches narrower. Still, it has a dressing-up feel to it that I like.
It’s been a crazy busy week this week, between exciting developments going on at work and in the evenings trying to finish my brother’s new company web site for launch. I think I would like to be knitting, and not trying to make absolutely positioned navigation sub-menus work across different browsers and operating systems. But, alas.
