The frankenscarf is on its way to marchingjaybird (finally, eep, it’s been a summer with very little knitting time) so here are some pictures with my segment added! I’ve had a pretty cable pattern picked out since I signed up for this but once I actually got my hands on it I decided I wanted to contribute something a little more true to the monstrous name. I settled on the pattern Circles, from Knitting New Scarves by Lynne Barr, for its resemblance to tentacles. I modified it a little to have four columns of circles instead of three, so it would lie better once sewn shut. Super fun to knit, though it got a little difficult once I started knitting the circles because whoever I was with would steal it to poke their fingers through them. :3
The finished Roland for my mom. Sometimes I hate making things for others because I don’t want to give them away. This is one of those cases. Now to finish the body of the one for kickintheheartout while indulging in Hemlock Grove.
Yes! The last couple of knitters didn’t have a chance to take photos so I had to wait until it got to the current knitter. We are now officially halfway through the project and the scarf is on its way to monkeyelfknits. achienagain was kind enough to send me a couple of photos before she mailed it off.
