Finally finished the "Mermaid Scarf," which is just a scarf knit in Mistake Rib pattern with knitted fringe. I chose a yarn that was very thin and needles that were also super thin, so I've seriously been knitting on this (not straight through, of course) since about October. I am annoyed at the yarn color I chose because it kind of hides the Mistake Rib pattern, and I really like that pattern. I wanted a yarn that was varigated, but nothing at my LYS was variegated like I wanted, so I picked the closest thing, not thinking about it, and realized that it's TOO much. So now the pattern is hidden and it just looks like a regular old ribbed scarf. Booooo!
Lesson learned, dammit.
Once I block it (to make the knitted fringe NOT look like crazy demon tentacles), I will snap some photos and post them. Already posted a hastily taken photo on my ravelry, but...bleh. Can't even tell what color it is, hardly!
