I started the Hitchhiker Scarf Pattern with 101 g of my Iris Dyed Yarn and size 4 knitting needles. This is yarn that I hand painted with food coloring inspired by the colors of my favorite flower, the iris. The cake gives a better sense of what the final product will look like. I love the color pattern a LOT more upon seeing it in a cake. I was worried that the abrupt color changes would look out of place. The colors mix is BEAUTIFUL, if I do say so myself!
The scarf really looks like an impressionist painting of a field of violets. This knitting has gone slower than I would normally have wanted... but I know that as soon as I finish it I will want to cast on another hitchhiker.
I worked on this project all over the place, and sometimes Lucky even helped me out!
After 34 teeth, 21 g of yarn remain. I'm so close to the end! 35 teeth - 16 g. After 37 teeth (before row 8, 7 g remain. I decided to play it safe and bind off here. This way I'll have enough yarn leftover for a hexipuff and a top secret project. (Although if you check out the ChemKnits YouTube channel, you may know what this is!)
