gimmee a WOO gimmee a HOO


WooHoo! An FO! A weekend FO! This little scarf has been in the making since last year –

It seems like every once in awhile, on a weekend, I get a bug. The Startitis Bug. The Bug that will not let you go until you get something on the needles – something that probably will not ever get off the needles unless you catch the Other Bug.

The Finishing Bug.

I admit it. I’m a Clothes Whore. I LOVE NEW CLOTHES! So when I gleaned the Work Basket (ahem, my whole House) and found this half-finished scarf a few days ago, I just couldn’t resist. Problem was, the original was not knit right – so it was frogged, started as a Grinda Scarf, frogged again (!) and NOW has attained its rightful place – Around My Neck…

I love new clothes…

28 stitch MultiDirectional Scarf
Designer: Karen Baumer
Yarn: Noro *Kureyon* – 2 balls
Color: ??? – this is what happens when you have Startitis
Needles: #10

    Congratulations!! It must be in the air. I finished two scarves-in-progress myself today.

    Fabulous, and it IS scarf weather. I have a real weakness for those multi-directional scarves and just bought some Lorna’s Laces worsted to do one.

  3. Scout says:

    Nice!!! I want to make that. Maybe after my trillion other things I want to make?

    I was running around the last couple of days in freezing temps with just a turtleneck, heavy sweater, down vest, AND taduh, a scarf to Seal the Deal…

    I truly believe The Scarf is the Key to being comfortable with less…

    Not to mention the BURST of COLOR around one’s face… :PPPPP

    Lovely scarf! What made you frog the Grinda? I’m curious, as I have one in the works.

  6. katie says:

    That is so pretty! The color changes of the Kureyon work so well with that pattern. Subtley interesting.

  7. Bonne Marie says:

    Ms. Grinda: it just didn’t look how I expected it to in this colourway…

    I will be making it in the near future out of some other yarn (TBA StashOmat)…

    It is such a lovely, unusual pattern – can’t wait to see yours, Sarah! :)

  8. Wendy says:

    Hey, I have that pattern. Now that I see yours, I’ll be finally knitting it up. I had startitis even before I got the thing on the needles. Now, I’ve got got-to-start-it-itis! Very nice!

    Wow, I’m working on a multidirectional scarf now, with some Fiesta La Boheme. Its color effect is different but also fun. Yay MD scarves! AKA Dr. Scarf. There, I said it.

    Sorry to miss the KIP! I was at work late. I do want to come again. Hope you had fun!

    Off to try to catch your Finishing Bug!

    Woooo hoooooooooooo! F-A-B!

    Now you inspire me to finish a few of my own knits, already. I love me some new duds :-)

  11. Laurie says:

    AHA! Something to do with those extra skeins of Kureyon!

    Thanks so much!

    Now, if I could just figure out how to do it on my LK150! LOL!

  12. Lolly says:

    Love it, Bonne Marie! I have some yarns in the ol’ stash that this pattern would be perfect for!
