Twist and Shout!

PinkScarf.jpg

This is my first finished scarf for the Think Pink Challenge. The idea is to make knitted or crocheted scarves (pink of course) for October for Breast Cancer Awareness. I believe they are being given away at some point, but please don't quote me! Go to the website and join in the fun!

Anyway. I used the pattern here I think I used #10 needles, but I'm not entirely positive. (I really need to post these things closer to when I finish them!) I do know that I used some Caron Simply Soft, dark pink for most of the rows and then light pink for the last couple (outside) rows.

OK. this pattern ends up incredibly cute, and I like the end result a lot. However! after the first couple rows I wanted to hurt someone. The increase rows made my hands hurt and cramp up just because it was all so tight. And can you say 720 stitch bind-off row? I honestly had to force myself to do "just a little bit more" in order to finish the stinking thing.

But I do like the end result a lot. So I'm going to try a different spiral scarf pattern and see if I like it better. I think just doing a different kind of increase would make it not so miserable. We shall see!

And because it just has to be included:

That would be my co-worker Jeff. I had the finished scarf at work and he decided to model it (and his pop bottle) for me!
