Pattern: Flame Chevron Scarf by Rebecca LaRose
Yarn: Pagewood Farms Denali sock yarn in the Sky Blue Pink colorway
Needles: size 2
It was definitely down to the wire, but I finished the scarf for my MIL last night! Granted, it's going to be wrapped in its unblocked form, as there's no way I could get it dry if I'd blocked it last night, but I don't think that'll be a problem.
The pattern was quite easy, though I never did quite get it memorized. I had to keep glancing at the pattern to remind myself where I was. Still, it went quite quickly on the days I was able to devote a good chunk of time to it.
The Pagewood Farms Denali is a good, solid sock yarn. I'd definitely have no problem using it again. This particular colorway has some interesting variation, and I love the base blue.
So now I just have to finish my mother's second pair of socks to be done with Christmas knitting. Fortunately, she's in CA right now, and won't be back until after the new year. While packing last night, I briefly toyed with the idea of bringing them along to VT for the long weekend, but I've been knitting non-stop most nights for about a month now, and it occurred to me that I could probably use a long weekend of knitting vacation.
