Raha Scarf

As promised, I have a few more pictures of the scarf – unfortunately, it was dark last night when I got home, and I don’t have time this morning to do a full photo shoot…

Pattern:  Raha Scarf, from Knitted Lace of Estonia (Ravelry Link)
Yarn:  Hand dyed yarn Lori Lawson by Capistrano Fiber Arts Studio
Started:  November 7,  2008
Finished:  November 12, 2008

My last post said I finished this in two days.  I’m not sure why I thought that, but maybe because it just felt like it was a fast knit.  But still – 5 days isn’t bad, and I know that I didn’t knit a couple of those days (now I feel like I’m arguing with myself about whether ir was a fast knit).

I love the pattern – and could absolutely see making another one.  This is a great way to use special balls of fingering weight yarn.  Although the pattern in the book uses a solid, I think it looks good in a varigated because the pattern is so big.

I had Cieara modeling the scarf, but Dan wanted to try – I think he got into it a little too much.  But you can see the length of it – this made one very nice long scarf.  I’m going to really like wearing it – I hate when scarves are too short.

I bought the yarn at La Petite Knitterie in California a couple of years ago –  I’d link but the link goes to a bad page – I wonder if they are still in business?  I was visiting my mother, and thought we’d go on a yarn crawl.  The store was really nice – but a bit pricey.  Anyway, I bought this yarn there and just loved the colors and softness.  I’m glad to see Lori has a Etsy shop…

All in all, another good project.  Now I just need it to get cold here again so I can wear it!

The reason I can’t take better day time pictures is that we are leaving in a little bit to go visit Andrew in Maryland.  We are going to a U of Maryland football game (yea for the weather forecast of rain and thunderstorms all afternoon!), and then taking him out to dinner – maybe even a movie.  We are staying over and heading back tomorrow after breakfast.  I’m looking forward to seeing him – plus all that knitting time in the car!  I did figure out the socks – same pattern (Tidal Wave), less stitches = more striping.  All is good.

OK, time to go – have a great weekend!
