{ bohemian scarf }

Here's another scarf for a friend . . . I finally sewed the ends in! I love to knit, but I don't enjoy the sewing in part. Anyway, it does feel good to get this done in time to send it away to a good friend just in time for Christmas.

For this scarf I used 2 balls Patons Bohemian yarn and size 9 circular needles. I casted on about 160 stitches and knit about 14 rows. This scarf is so amazingly soft!!

I wonder what my Christmas Blog Treat is going to be . . . any ideas?

    Nothing yet... I saw the sketches she made for me, gave her my opinion on them and haven't heard back. What about you?

  6. I LOVE Paton's Bohemianm yarn! I knitted a scarf for myself out of this yarn last year on my trip to Europe! I was even able to find some beads to put on the tassels in a little bead shop in Belgium that TOTALLY matched the colors in the yarn. :) I just finished knitting a scarf with the Bohemian yarn for a friend and made two last year for my grandmother and my son's teacher. LOVE that stuff!!!

  10. Hi Cindy,
    I haven't knit in years, but after seeing this scarf I think I might just start up again. It's beautiful and the colour is fantastic.
