Alhambra Scarf Happiness
Pattern: Alhambra Scarf by Anne Hanson
Materials: 1 skein Sea Silk in "Pumpkin" and US 3 circular needles
My Modifications: I knit 6 extra patterns repeats for a longer scarf.
After knitting the recommended 16 pattern repeats, the scarf didn't seem long enough. I perused Ravelry for Alhambra FOs and found that many knitters wished their scarves were longer. I decided just to finish the whole skein of Sea Silk. After blocking it is just over 5 ft. long. I love this color!
I'm getty ready to pick up our boy from the airport. Tonight he is getting his favorites: lasagne, green beans steamed right after being picked from the garden, and homemade banana chocolate chip bread for dessert. Can you tell I missed him? (I'll be glad to get my camera back too!)
