Weaving!!!



No, not on a loom! I wish! I finally finished weaving in all the ends on my sister's Koigu scarf. Want to guess how many ends that was? 53! I did not do it as I was knitting so it was all left till the end. I have a very similar scarf that she knit for me. We used the same pattern and some of the Koigu colors were the same. Remember from previous post that it was from her left over Koigu after knitting the Koigu Keepsake Shawl. So, I had to do the same for her, my pleasure because I love her to pieces!! She has gifted me several times will beautiful handknits. If you want to see a huge close-up of the scarf just click on it! So close you can see the wood grain of my table! More important the chevron pattern and the COLORS. Anyway after all the knitting I've done lately with Koigu I still love the yarn and am ready for another Koigu project!

Beautiful scarf, the patterning reminds me of endpapers in old books. 53 ends? Good grief...

Wow, that is beautiful! I want it... but I don't want to weave in 53 ends (those are the kids of projects I tell myself I'll weave them in as I go along.... right...)

Pretty scarf. Koigu truly is one of my faves too.

A great gift! Have you tried EZ's "knit in as you go" way of weaving the ends? I use it a lot.

Gorgeous! I love the rich colors. I've not tried this yarn yet. It's on the list for next year. {grin] If I can last that long!
