I cast off this project several weeks ago, and I have to admit that it's been hard to keep on display at the store and not on my own neck. This is the Lace Ribbon Scarf from Knitty, and I used just one skein of Malabrigo Sock in the Candombe colorway. I have a really nice color selection in stock right now in Sock, so it's a good time to pick out a color for someone special in your life. This is the perfect gift knit- under $20, fits all sizes, and is a simple yet impressive design. Definitely something you can mindlessly knit while watching all the new fall TV shows.
This is the second time I knit this pattern, and the first time I used one and a half skeins of Casbah. But this time, I wanted to show a great one-skein project in the store, and so I knit the pattern until I had a few yards left, then skipped to the bind off. I love how the color knit up- no obvious striping or pooling. I blocked out the scarf to show off the lace, but it seems to have un-blocked itself over the past few weeks. Perhaps I didn't let it dry all the way? I have to admit, my blocking talents aren't great. So if you have any tips, feel free to leave them in the comments below.
