Double FO: One Row Scarf & Calorimetry

Pattern: One Row Scarf by the Yarn Harlot

Yarn:Malabrigo Merino in Paris Nights, 1.3 skeins

Needles: US 8

Notes: Rarely do I repeat a pattern – I have far too much in my queue to feel the need for any repeats!  This is the second scarf I have made from this pattern, and it is officially my favorite.  I cast on one repeat more than the pattern called for, and I knit to around 5 feet long  – long enough to double up,but not too long to wear under shorter coats.  I do find that the pattern makes my fingers tired, but it makes up for that by being really quick once you get started.  The yarn (of course) is super yummy, and if I could manage I would knit only with Malabrigo in the future!

Pattern: Calorimetry

Yarn: Leftover Malabrigo from my one row scarf

Needle: US 6

Notes: Now I’m not the only one who hasn’t made one!  I made significant mods.  I cast on 92 stitches and repeated row five 10 times.  It fits my large head perfectly!  It’s surprisingly warm, and I can’t believe I finally have a matched set – I usually clash horribly all winter!

Actual color is somewhere in between the two here – less purple than the last photo, but lighter than the two above.

I hope everyone is having a happy halloween – we just handed out candy for the first time here, and I talked to a few parents in the neighborhood about piano lessons for their children.  Pirates seemed the most popular costume.  I’m sad that my perennial childhood costume, the hobo, seems to have died off.  Every year I wore my Mom’s army jacket and carried a bundle tied to a stick.  It wasn’t imaginitive, but it didn’t involve sewing!

We were invited to a party, but I’m thinking we’re going to skip out – Marc has to leave town tomorrow, and I’m tired today after a meeting last night that lasted til nearly 10 pm.  Ah well… many halloweens to come!

  1. I have knit many of those same scarves with Malabrigo and just love them too! The finished look is so worth the tired fingers, ha? Love your set and the green coat is stunning! 🙂

  2. Hey – I just wanted to let you know that I love your blog! I check up on it quite a lot… love seeing the progress and the FOs =)
    As for me, I’m a super new knitter, and I’d really appreciate it if you checked out my blog that I just started. Any suggestions or comments are appreciated! As of right now, I’m wondering what my next knitting project should be… I’m looking for something easyish =P
    Anyway, thanks for stopping by if you do, and happy knitting!

  3. OH btw, I feel like I kind of stole your layout, but I really didn’t mean to! I didn’t even realize you had the same one until I went back and checked your blog… I was like, oh hey, that’s really pretty, and familiar – wait. That’s MY blog layout. lolface

  4. What a nice, cozy set to keep you warm! I enjoyed that pattern, too, but haven’t resvisited it yet.

    Knitting only with Malabrigo would be lovely — I might make an exception for Manos Silk Blend, though. 🙂

  5. your work is fantastic! I don’t have the patience to complete things that fast with yarn, although I do with seed beads.

    The greens and blues look great on you…
    (and I like your interior work too)
