One down...... working on the UFO's.

Well, I finished David's scarf. Look at him! He's such a pickle, with his funny little face there. That scarf is made in the grit stitch, which I learned making the Vanilla Grit Stitch Washcloth from the Lion Brand site. I blogged about it a while ago, when I was playing making washcloths. That was fun. So was this scarf, and this scarf is so nice. It has a nice feel to it, a nice texture, which David loves. I made it with I Love This Yarn, so it's soft and snuggly, too. It'll keep my boy warm on a chilly day.
The stitch is really easy, it's like a single crochet and a double crochet into one stitch, skip the next stitch, and do the same the rest of the way across. I did twelve sets per row, and the scarf is a nice width. I just used up the whole skein of yarn, didn't measure or anything. Like I said, it's really too simple.
Y'all have a great day. I'm off to finish more UFO's.

Very nice scarf. And your son seems to really love it, too! Always a good thing, especially when you make it for them. LOL.

Very nice. It looks like a good solid stitch, no gaps to let in drafts. I'm sure David is loving it.
