FOs: Rainbow Scarf and Fingerless Mitts


You might remember a couple of days ago I told you about the Rainbow Scarf with Clouds and how it was too big for Chloe. Well I needed to whip her up a replacement pretty quickly, and it needed to be a rainbow scarf with pink in it (I know, I know).  I had seen this Rainbow Scarf pattern on Ravelry when I was looking before, and since it was so simple I decided to give it a go. I had it whipped up in a evening, but put the tassels on the next morning.

Lovely rows

As you can see from that last photo, There was a pattern to make matching Fingerless Mitts too. I went ahead and made them in an evening, I just doubled up on the rows to make them a bit longer.

Can you spot the mistake?

Yeah, I forgot to do a row of double pink on the glove on the right – oops! Never mind, easily rectified.

Fixed!

They look really smart with the scarf too;

Looking good together

Chloe loves it all

Chloe went out to play in her new ensemble and actually kept it all on, her gloves usually come off at the first opportunity, I’d say that was  a win!



Wait, what’s this?


Another finished object!

This is my simple funky scarf that was actually started while it was still a bit cold. Honest!

You can’t see it too well in the photo, but I think that’s more to do with the ‘yarn’ used than anything else. I’m not actually sure if you would still call this yarn, The lable just says Sidar Fizz in Matador. It’s more like string with bits of material woven into it really.

Now, I know that this will be frowned on by a lot of people as not ‘proper’ knitting as there is no elegant pattern to behold, but I would challange that view as the scarf has been made with a knit stitch and just because something is simple and more attractive because of what it is made from than by how it was made, this does not make it wrong.

My scarf feels lovely to the touch, the Fizz was actually very easy to knit with and it came along very quickly, it has only taken me so long to finish it as I kept on starting other things (also the weather got warmer and I had already knit a scarf that I was wearing).

So, I only have one more UFO to get out of the way (the panda hat that needs sewing) the other two (socks and blanket) are destined to remain WiP for a while I think. But I can live with that.
