Flit 'n Float Finale

We have photos (sort of) of the Flit 'n Float scarf to enjoy. It is very hard to photograph an entire scarf, and I was not having luck with my artsy shots. But, you'll get the idea.

This is the best view, I guess. It is quite pretty and feels very nice to the touch. I am a bit disappointed that it still loves to curl in. Stockinette. What did I expect? I'm not going to starch it! And it looks fine on, even curling.

This close-up shows a better view of the ruffle. At least I got the picot cast off to lay down and behave a bit.
I took some artistic photos in a tree with back lighting. These colors are very true, and it looks pretty with the sun coming through.

While this one ends up over-exposed to the max, you can really see the lace patterning, so I like it for that reason. I don't know if this is a keeper or a gift. It took 4 ounces of my yarn, which means I still have over half the skein left. That is enough for socks or another nice scarf! Of course, now I wish I had made a triangular shawl with it. Oh well. Glad I tried this project since I know the designer!

Both pairs of socks are moving along nicely. The Hopscotch ones now fit just fine and I am close to the heel, and I am ready to do the heel on the Air Raid pair. They are going to be short, for summer, so I am doing the heel at around 4".

Off to the yarn shop as soon as the air conditioning repair guy leaves. Just what we need with my new job not panning out very well--more expenses, sigh. I wish there were a way to earn enough to make a dent in the expenses with knitting, but no one is making a living with their knitting except the Yarn Harlot! Everyone else has "real" jobs or is retired! Or is lucky enough to have a spouse who makes enough to live on.


  1. LOVE this scarf and yours turned out beautifully. I have it on my "to knit" list.

  2. Wow, that is gorgeous! The yarn really shows off the pattern, and vice versa. You should be proud! :)

  3. Thanks for the nice comment on the shawl. Hey! You made the 'Flit/Float' scarf! I love it!
