A Friday Finish!

IMG_8895

I finally finished knitting something!  It’s a Hitchhiker.

I could tell you (again) how the Hitchhiker is the best scarf pattern ever.  I could tell you I love the color.  I could tell you about manually striping a solid and variegated yarn to break up the pooling even more.

 

I could tell you how happy I am to have frogged this yarn from a different project to reclaim it for one.  I could sing the praises of neon green.  I could tell you it’s perfect timing because Fogust is arriving in style, it’s super foggy this week.

I could tell you it took me 15 movies to knit this.  I could even give you reviews of those movies.

Unfortunately, I’m short on time, heading to another movie.  With no knitting?!?  For my next trick, I will be crocheting in the dark!  I’ll let you know how it goes!

      So, now that I’ve double checked on my needle size, even I’m a bit surprised at how loose my gauge was. I used a US 3 needle for this. The yarn is a sock yarn. This is why I’ll don’t knit socks!

      Is ‘Frogged’ the part you question? Tearing out a work in progress is called Frogging it. Because when you rip it out, you sound like a frog. rippit rippit *ribbit ribbit* Somehow, this delightful pun has become common knitting language! :)

        I striped a variegated with a solid…so I really just spread the variegation out a bit extra. I’m happy with how it turned out, lots of neon green! I’m not getting lost in a crowd!
