Stash-busting #16 - Scarf.


Det første stash-buster prosjektet i juni er ferdig, det er et pynteskjerf strikket av flerfarget polyestergarn.
Jeg fant fort ut at jeg ikke er noen stor fan av polyestergarn, jeg synes det var litt plundrete å strikke med. Men på 10 mm pinner gikk det heldigvis fort unna.
Skjerfet var ikke lett å fotografere heller...


My first stash-buster project in June is finished; a scarf knitted from multicoloured polyester yarn.
While knitting it I discovered that I'm not a big fan of polyester yarn, I find it a bit tricky to knit with. But with 10 mm needles the scarf worked up quickly.
It wasn't that easy to photograph the scarf either...




...så det måtte en modell til for å få vist hvordan det ser ut.

Pynteskjerfet er ca 1,5 meter langt, ganske stretchy og frynsene er ca 20 cm lange.
Det gikk med 74 gram garn.


...so it needed a model to show what it looks like.

The scarf is ca 1,5 meter long and rather stretchy, and the fringes are ca 20 cm long.
It weighed in at 74 grams.


Det var ni nøster av dette flerfargede polyestergarnet i garnlageret mitt, og halvannet nøste gikk med til skjerfet.
Nå har jeg begynt å strikke en veske av samme garn, og jeg håper at riktig mange nøster går med til den.


There were nine balls of this multicoloured polyester yarn in my stash, and one and a half ball was used up on the scarf.
Now I have started to knit a bag using the same yarn, which hopefully will use up a bigger amount of yarn.


Tanken er at det skal bli en enkel bagaktig veske med bambushåndtak, så får jeg se om jeg rekker å få den ferdig i løpet av juni :)


I am thinking it will be a simple bag with bamboo handles. It's not working up so fast, so I'll just wait and see if it will be finished by the end of June :)

I love the look of this scarf Hilde! All those shades of purple look great. I feel the same way about acrylic yarn, it doesn't have the same "give" and the squeaking on the needles is like nails on a chalkboard for me :] Wendy

Så fint!
Det vil bli perfekt inntil en ensfarget kåpe/jakke.
Det er beundringsverdig å strikke med så tykke pinner.
Ha en fin søndag!
klem

The colours are lovely but know what you mean about stretchy! I have some in blue and purple - I did try some crochet with it but found it tricky...though thinking about it now, granny squares I can do by feel! You might have re-inspired me to try again Hilde!

I love the colors, but I don't like to knit from that kind of yarn ether. The scarf looks good.
