July Knit Something of the Month Project

DSC05392
All finished! My usual model was preoccupied with running in circles at top speed this morning with his ears flying behind him like flags, so the scarf had to model itself. I used two skeins of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in Ravenswood and US 5's (3.75 mm). It blocked out to 9 inches wide by 99 inches long. Yes, clearly I could have stopped knitting before I did, but this way I can loop it around and around and around my neck. And maybe Logan's neck too.

The drop stitch sections in the stitch pattern make it very open and airy, which is important for Texas. This clearly will not be the kind of scarf I grab in a blizzard. (Do we have those here? Do we have temps below 80 F here? I don't remember). It will work well as the kind of scarf that gives me the look of wearing a scarf when it does cool off, without being too warm.

I'm glad I didn't make socks with this, even though it would have made pretty socks. The scarf pattern has no pooling, just spots of the different colors all over itself.

When you talk Logan for walks in our cold months, y'all can wear the scarf at the same time! Wait, we don't have cold months. :(

Beautiful scarf - I love the colors - only I missed your usual model. I just saw the movie "A Dog's Year" and flashed on Logan and my neighbor's Australian Shepherd during some of the movie dog's more challenging moments. The movie dog was also fond of running in circles for extended periods of time.

It is a very lovely scarf - and it looks like a perfect pattern for warm weather states! Nice combination.

Lovely! I live in "Ravenswood", a section of Chicago, and that is a colorway that does us proud. (It reminds me of the red brick and blue skies visible from the windows of Lorna's Laces but Beth says that was not the inspiration for the name.
