In Which Something Is Finally Finished

The chaos of my knitting temperament of late means that a lot of things are on the needles – and none of them have appeared to be making their way off.  This was leading me dangerously close to a fiber snap in which some piece of innocent knitting was going to be thrown across the room, stamped on, maybe turned into a cat bed for a while, and then stuffed in a bag.  However, last night I made a great push to complete the project closest to completion, which has thankfully restored my desire to trudge forward.

And behold, draped around the neck of my besmircking youngling, the completed purple sparkly scarf-turned-inifinity-cowl for Ellette.  She loves it, which is good, because if she didn’t I may have just strangled myself with it.

The yarn is Polaris from Rozetti yarns.  It had the sequins stranded into the yarn directly, which made for easy knitting and adds the fun sparkly bit.  Honestly, though, I thought I would be in love with this yarn because on the shelf it was enchanting.  Knitting it up, however, was a bit of a pain.  The yarn is underplied and splitty and the sequins occassionally did not want to slide through the stitches easily.  I tried to make an invisible seam but the sequins kept getting in the way and puckering the yarn.  I finally ditched that effort in favor of a quick crocheted seam.

The stitch pattern is a simple seafoam pattern, which if you do a Ravelry search there are dozens of examples.  I believe this is the one that gave me the inspiration though.

I don’t really have anything else close to completion at the moment, so it’s back to trudging for me.
