A Knit-A-Long

I don’t usually participate in Knit-Alongs.  That is partly because I don’t really have the time for it, and partly because many of the knit-alongs I have encountered are either too rigid, or I plain don’t like the pattern.  I cannot fathom spending time and money on an item I will not enjoy when it is complete.

Enter the lovely Anastasiamw over at For The Knit of It.  She recently posted about some very lovely scarves, and I commented that there was one inparticular I loved and mentioned that it would make a wonderful knit-along, because I was intending on knitting it anyway.  The idea stuck, and beginning today, we are starting the Bosc Scarf Knit-Along!

The Bosc Scarf (Ravelry link there) is a lovely cable pattern that I think looks like butterflies – hence it’s appeal to me.  I did a stash dive for the yarn and surfaced with this lovely worsted superwash merino, approximately 500 yards, in a deep mossy green, that I had purchased at Stitches Midwest last summer.

Unfortunately, this is as far as I’ve gotten so far.  I have sort of been taken down by a migraine, so I am moving slowly.  Heavy thinking is beyond me at the moment.

Want to join the knit-along?  It’s super easy.  Grab a copy of the pattern and join the Ravelry group.  Start at any point this month, and we are hoping to finish on the last day of March (but that is just a guideline – we all understand that life sometimes gets in the way).
