Charity scarves

Well here they are right to left: First we have Lion Brand Wool Ease in Blue Heather- done in a simple garter stitch, Red Heart Super Saver in ??,- done in Double Cable Scarf from One Skein, unknown mystery yarn in Hunter Green- done in Garter stitch with fringe, Lion Brand Wool Ease in Camel?- done in Basket Weave with Seed stitch border, Lion Brand Jiffy in Heather Blue-done in Garter Stitch.

The only scarf that I used a whole skein for was the Jiffy. The others (not the red one) used a bit less than a skein, as that was all that was left.

Here is number 6: Lion Brand Wool Ease in Grey Heather- using the One Row Handspun Scarf pattern from Yarn Harlot.

I have knit about half way, maybe.

Here is a closer look at the design.

I am now on scarf #6. I will post some picture of the ones I have done so far probably tomorrow, when there is better lighting. I hope anyway.

For the #6 scarf I dug through the scarf patterns I already had on my computer. The winner was a pattern from Yarn Harlot. It can be found in her archives with this date: October 12, 2006. Not really sure what the name is, but the blog title is One Row Handspun Scarf. The pattern is the same on both sides and as the title indicates it is a one row pattern. Very easy to remember, and to adjust width. Both important factors for scarf possibility.

I really do hope there is some sunlight tomorrow, or at least the rain stops long enough for me to go outside to get some post worthy pictures.
