Sometimes it seems like I never finish a project. I start something, get really excited about it, and then abandon it for the next pattern I fall in love with. But occasionally I do actually finish something, believe it or not!
Back in mid-September, Michaels had a big sale on Caron Cakes yarn. Laura fell in love with the Blueberry Shortcake colorway and asked me to make her a scarf. First I tried altering the Winter Rays Scarf from Left in Knots.
It really wasn’t working out with this weight of yarn, so I ripped it apart and decided to just do a C2C (corner to corner) scarf. It’s a pattern I’ve made before, and relatively quick. I was cruising right along with it until last week when I had to frog about 16 inches because I started the decrease too soon on one row! Ugh! That was no fun, but at least it’s such a quick pattern to work up that recovery didn’t take too long.
I modified the Corner to Corner Throw pattern from Red Heart to make this scarf. Basically, it’s just a rectangle and you hardly need a pattern because the technique is pretty easy, but I always have a hard time getting started, so I like to refer to that pattern.
What’s my next project? While I should turn my focus back to my Atlanticus blanket or that granny shrug, I think I am going to try to quickly whip up another Caron Cakes project, and make myself a triangle scarf. Hopefully I can start on that today!
