Current projectsss: Third time's a charm. I hope.

Image hosted by

This was my first attempt at making a Ravenclaw scarf. I started with US9 needles and just the regular stockinette stitch, but I soon realized that it was not going to lay flat. If you notice one end of the scarf is twice as wide as the other end and THAT IS BAD. So I started over on my US10.5 circular needles. The pattern I used called for 75 stitches or something ridiculous like that, so I took it down to 60. However, that was not enough. I don't have a picture, but I got halfway through the first grey stripe and I realized that it was way too wide. So I frogged it and decided to start over again with less stitches. But then I realized the plastic cord thing was too long and I couldn't stretch 45 stitches over the whole thing. And I thus became very very frustrated. But then! Then I notice the roll of duct tape that my boyfriend left at my house and I say hey, duct tape works well right. So I looped the cord and taped it and shortened it, so hopefully that will work. We shall see. I sure hope so. I'm tired of always being at the beginning of this scarf. More pictures later.
