Men's Knit Scarf Update

Thursday, January 30, 2014

Hello blog friends, I have been working on the men's knit scarf a little bit each day and I have made some progress on it and I'd love to show you.  I decided to add grey yarn to the scarf as I think the scarf needed a little bit of contrast.  To see the beginning of my work on the knit scarf you can see it here.


The grey yarn that I am using is Great Canadian by Bouquet and the yarn is made in Canada.  My mom gave me this yarn to use a while ago and I'm using it now for the scarf.  I love afternoon coffee to keep me going through the day and I love using my Dunkin' Donuts mug!

I plan on making the scarf at least 60 to 65 inches long and I'm hoping I will have enough yarn to work with.

I figure if I work a little bit each day on the scarf then it won't be so overwhelming for me.   I really like the way that the scarf is coming out and I'm using the grey yarn to make a stripe effect.  I learned how to use a circular knitting needle from watching some YouTube videos and I find it a little bit easier with holding the needles.  I find the YouTube videos very helpful and I even learned how to add different colored yarn by watching them and how to weave in your ends of yarn.

You can click here to see where I may be partying this week.

I am on Google +, Twitter, Ravelry and Pinterest.  My username is @brklynhousewife.  Please don't forget to follow me on Bloglovin too!  All of my crochet/knit creations and recipes are on my Pinterest Boards, so please have a look there also.  

Thanks everyone and enjoy.
