I'm traveling this week, but wanted to post my progress on the scarf for my International Scarf Exchange 3 pal. Here she is, off the needles but still curled.
Uncurled, she's over six feet (but under two meters) long. The pattern is My So-Called Scarf, worked in neck-friendly Malabrigo Merino in colorway Lime Blue.
To help control shazaaming, I knit from two balls alternately. The technique mostly worked. The scarf began with flattish navy blobs which turned into tallish navy blobs, continued with randomish navy stripes, and finished with roundish navy blobs. Had I used one ball at a time, I suspect there would be significant and ever-changing pooling and flashing.
I've sent the scarf to my pal along with a few goodies – I hope she enjoys them.
