DNA scarf

20130213-184657.jpg

Hey everyone! Sorry that its been so long since I posted! I had an exam last Friday and two more exams tomorrow so things have been a bit crazy and I haven’t had much time to knit. I just wanted to give you an update on what I’m working on. I started the DNA scarf pattern again- this time with Knit Pick’s Wool of the Andes Sport Weight yarn in oyster heather. It’s holding the pattern much better. In the picture, it looks a little pink but its actually a nice neutral tan. I’ve never knit with a yarn that’s so thin so I’m surprised at how long it takes to make any progress. I’m on row 27 and the scarf is only about 3 inches long. Each DNA twist repeat is 40 rows. Needless to say, this is going to be a long project. A new thing that has saved me is the discovery of row counters! Since I keep having to stop in the middle of a repeat, this keeps me from making as many mistakes. Although, as you can probably see, I’ve still had a few rough spots. I just can’t bring myself to rip out so many rows so I’ll keep going and hope that nobody notices….
I promise I’ll post more in the future but for now, I’ve got to go study!

    I love the pattern! And, I doubt anyone will notice a few small spots. It is crazy how much longer it takes to complete a sport-weight scarf than it is to complete a worsted-weight scarf! I’ve only knitted one fingering-weight scarf in my life and it took forever! 🙂
