My Part is Complete!
Today in the car, I completed my portion of this traveling scarf that began its journey in PA. I finally settled on this popcorn stitch pattern, after having taken out my stitches about four times trying to find the perfect match. I can see how this project is beneficial in increasing your skill because you have to learn how to stitch behind someone else, which isn't all that easy because everyone has a different tension. Also, you have to do your best to match yarns and colors and patterns that won't clash. The funniest thing is that my best contribution will probably be on my own scarf that I will receive last because by then I will have learned more skill! If only I could go back and fix that first traveling scarf. Humm....
Well, on this scarf, the first person did a "grit" stitch, the second person used the "diamond" stitch, and I used the "popcorn" stitch. The color I chose was "natural" from Caron's Simply Soft.
After I finished mine, I bordered it with scs on both sides to make the edging look more finished. (The real truth is that I wanted to cover up some mistakes. hee hee hee). Shhhh, don't tell. Here's my part at the top:
I am excited to get this scarf in the mail so that it can go to the next person in OH. Then I will patiently wait for the next scarf to come to me from Switzerland in a couple of weeks. In the meantime, I will catch up on some other crafting projects (especially now that I've finally filed my taxes). Whooo hooo!!!
