Good grief. First there is the red, which is always a challenge with digital cameras. And then there is the lengthwise-striped garter stitch, ditto. These scarves are always so much more attractive in real life than in their photos. Trust me, this scarf is really handsome. And the stripe that looks like black is really a dark eggplant. I believe the Kool-Aid color was Black Cherry, or maybe it was a combination of Strawberry and Grape -- who can remember! The brighter red was a lot of Strawberry Kool-Aid -- that one I labeled so I know -- and the middle color I have no idea. The yarn started out a rather hideous shade of beige not unlike the hideous shade of beige they use in underwear that they call nude. The Kool-Aid dye was a big improvement.
Anyway, nice scarf, but not photogenic at all.
Lengthwise striped scarf, DK weight lambswool superwash that I dyed with Kool-Aid several years ago. I cast 260 stitches on a US7 needle, and the scarf came out exactly 60 inches long. It's just short of 6 inches wide. This is my second scarf for Red Scarf Project 2011. I forgot that I had one already done and in the bin waiting for mates. What an excellent discovery!
