Magda

I finally finished my sister's birthday present! It was a little late (her birthday was in October), but it was knitted with lots of love and good intentions, you see, this is supposed to be a "good love" charm, something that will help her navigate the complex road of singlehood and help her get to her "destination" safe and sound. I didn't tell her all of this, I guess she'll find out when she reads this post. Sis: I love you.

Here's Jack modeling the scarf


Here's a close-up

I don't have the finished measurments, I was in a big hurry to get it in the mail before 3pm, I think it ended up being 5 1/2" by 70" (?). I used almost 2 skeins of Classic Elite Yarns "Miracle" (50% Alpaca, 50% Tencel) in color Ladyslipper. This yarn is sooo soft! It also has a nice sheen to it, you can't really tell from the pictures (note to self: take better pictures). The stitch pattern is from Vogue's stitchionary Vol. 1, I just added 2 stitches on each side to make a garter stitch border. I knitted each half separately and used 3-needle bind off to seam it. I didn't know this similar pattern existed, great minds think alike!

I love the background, the meaning, the pattern and even the yarn name--they all tie together nicely! Great scarf!
