Twinkle Diamond Scarf

My first FO for 2010 is a scarf!  I started this sometime in December to use some yarns in my stash.  It was fun knitting with what my husband called baseball bats.  :)




Pattern:  Diamond Scarf from Twinkle's Big City Knits by Wenlan Chia
Yarn:  Caron Simply Soft Quick (Held two together)
Needles:  US size 35
Changes:  Didn't add fringe and didn't pay attention to the length... I just stopped when I felt like it.
Comments:  I love the pattern!  It was pretty easy to memorize, but it's hard to see the lace in person... maybe I need to block it?  It seems like you can see it better in the picture.  It was a present to a lady at church.  This yarn is super soft!

What a cute scarf. Is it difficult using such a large needle?

I love your chunky knit scarf. It looks so cozy.

I have "Twinkle Sews" - it has really different patterns. I bet her knitting patterns are amazing!

Beautiful! I am always envious/ in awe of people with knitting ability.

Thanks, ladies!

@Tanya - The large needles do take some getting used to, but it's not difficult.

@ASewnWardrobe - I love her knitting patterns, but they are a little difficult to decipher. If you do take up knitting and her patterns I recommend reading the project notes on Ravelry.

@Faye - Thank you!

@Antoinette - Thanks! Hehehe... knitting is easier than you think. :)
