The Finish Line
Project: Honeycomb Scarf
Started: July 27, 2012
Finished: August 11, 2012
Pattern: Honeycomb Scarf by Ligaya Gritz
Yarn: Knit Picks Shimmer Hand Dyed Lace Yarn in Stained Glass (given to me by Leanne in the Itty-Bitty Teddy Bear Swap 2 years ago, I finally found the perfect pattern for it! Thanks Leanne!!)
Hook: G (4.00 mm) and 1 mm (for adding the beads)
This was my final project for the Ravellenic Games. It is a Christmas gift for my Aunt, and therefore, the first completed Christmas gift for this year! That right there is so exciting to me, I feel like this year I may actually get my gifts done with time to spare. The pattern was great and fun to crochet, although adding the beads was a bit tedious, but I think that's just how it goes with beads. They are very subtle, but when the light catches it just right, they add a nice glimmer to the scarf. The yarn was of course beautiful to work with, as is almost all Knit Picks yarn, and the colours are stunning, the photo (taken at night) doesn't do it justice.
I had such a great time being a part of team Itty Bitty Knitty and I can't say enough about how wonderful all the ladies in this group are. They're such a supportive and encouraging bunch! I hope that each of you enjoyed the Ravellenic Games as well if you took part in them, they're a great way to bring all us crafters together in unity and friendship.
Have a lovely day,
