2012AdventCalendarScarf Day 17


My cats have decided that they love my scarf, and take turns trying to lie down on it while I am knitting. Here, Beena places her "paw of control" on the computer.

2012 Advent Calendar Scarf update.

The pattern for today, Day 17, is very easy.  Again, the only interesting stitch is a double decrease.  Kristen gives  it to us as sl, k2tog, psso, slip one stitch knitwise,  knit the next 2 stitches together, pass the slipped stitch back over the stitches you just knit together.  I tried it that way, and again as a sssk (slip slip slip knit), and saw no difference in the end project.

Other than those decreases, it was a very easy pattern.
What does it look like?
For such an easy to knit pattern, it is very beautiful.

The entire scarf looks like this, now:
It is too long to fit width-wise on my table.

I have been neglecting to write the "life" part of my blog, with all of this scarf knitting.  I will try to catch up tomorrow.

For now, I think we can all use a little Peace.

shaping the planet with Day 17.
