It’s Halloween! But my kids are older so I don’t have to go out in the cold to trick-or-treat, and I don’t have to answer the door over and over while listening to my dogs bark. As cute as my kids were when they were little, I confess I don’t miss the chaos of Halloween. Instead, I’ll leave my porch light off and just keep knitting like it’s a normal night. I’ve got another bottle sweater on my needles, but today I wanted to show off my latest FO, my Not So Lacy Lace Scarf.
After blocking, it was 72″, and at first I was afraid that was too long, but now I think it’s perfect. Plenty of length to wrap around however you want!
Sorry for the less than stellar photos; it’s been a little chilly and I’ve been too lazy to get outside for a proper photo shoot.
The yarn is Schachenmayr Fashion Soft Mix, a nylon/alpaca/wool mix and it’s super lightweight and soft and fluffy! It’s a gift, and I really hope they aren’t sensitive to alpaca or wool. I haven’t made a scarf in a long time, and I was afraid it would drag on forever, but I finished this in a week! Once I memorized the 4-row repeat, it was fast and fun.
Hope you all have a safe and fun Halloween!
Your scarf is lovely!
That’s a lovely scarf! I do the same thing, and always worry that scarves will take forever (even though they have fewer stitches overall than many of my other projects). This one turned out great, though!
So beautiful! (A mom of small children saying this after two glasses of wine after trick or treating)
Ohh yeah, been there! Glad you got some time to yourself!
Ooh Bonny that’s a stunning scarf. I don’t miss Halloween either. We did the same thing!
