Irish Hiking Scarf @ Hello Yarn
Yarn: Karabella - 2 balls Aurora 8 color #1350 & 4 balls Aurora Bulky Melange color #007/AB7
Yardage: Just under 420 yards used - end weight 10 ounces - 64 inches long
Yarn Source: Jimmy Beans Wool - Reno
Needles: Lantern Moon - Rosewood US 8 / 5mm - I also used a bamboo cable needle and a plastic clover cable needle. I prefer the bamboo because it allowed for more control, although the dip in the plastic needle was nice as it put the needle down a bit out of the way.
Gauge: I didn't pay attention to gauge as it was a scarf, although it does seem to be in line with the scarves dimensions overall.
Modifications: I used two weights of yarn in two different colors.
Notes: This is the first scarf I have ever completed. It was the second scarf I started, but we all know what happened with the RockStar Scarf. :P I started it on April 21st (I think *L*). Considering I had only just started to teach myself to knit on March 25th I'd say that's not too shabby. ;) I finished the IHS last Friday morning, June 30th. I wanted to take it to show some people at a get together that night. :D
I washed it last Saturday. I haven't had an opportunity to take a quality photo of it out in the sun since. Not lack of sunlight, just lack of time. o.0
Here is a picture of it drying after I washed it with Eucalan and Lavender No Rinse Wool Wash. I love that stuff, btw. Here's a bonus picture of it at the front of the house before it was washed just because it was bright out there. I feel weird taking pictures there though. The neighbors likely think I'm weird enough as it is without taking pictures of handknits in my front yard eh. o.0
