Irish Hiking Scarf - Show and Tell Friday

Pin It Now!


Welcome to Show and Tell Friday!  About this time every year I get the knitting bug! I pulled out the scarf I've been working on for the last three years to knit and realized that the moths had found the wool.  I didn't even notice that they had eaten holes in it until I worked on it for a couple hours!  It was so bad I just threw it away and started all over with a non-wool yarn.  It was hard to throw it away because it was almost finished!  


This time I think I will finish it this season!  I may even start another one once this is finished since this one is for my daughter and I would like one for myself!  If you know how to knit the pattern is very easy. It can be downloaded free here: Ravelry Irish Hiking Scarf Pattern.  

I would like to say thank you for to all of you that clicked on the HP link to help me win the contest!  The contest ends Sunday and I am in the lead thanks to all of you!  I really need a new computer so I'm so thrilled that so many of you helped me out!

That scarf is really pretty Cindy. The cable stitch is my favorite. I'm going to tell my daughter about this pattern. She's the knitter in the family. Thanks for hosting, good luck with the contest and have a great weekend.

Too bad the critters had a meal of your scarf. I've had to throw away many a sweater because of hungry moths. This one looks lovely. ;-)

the scarf us lovely. I used to have a fisherman's sweater with a similar pattern. It was big and loose with a v neck and it was my absolute favorite. I had it for about 15 years. I finally had to let it go a couple of winters ago.:-(
Always happy to be part of the fun thank you for hosting. xo

You are just full of talent
I never did start knitting since I couldn't get the hang of crochet
It looks like a gorgeous color
It was 25 degrees here this morning and your sweater would have been welcome

Love the scarf and the knit..Would love to have an afghan like that with maybe a little cable thrown in..

Jeanette Ann O'Donnell said...

Cindy,what a shame to have to throw such a lovely scarf out. You made it so beautifully too,all that work for nothing. Good luck next time. I must admit I made a baby shawl and packed it away safely and the silver fish ate all around the edge of it :( not a nice feeling to find it like that,especially knowing that those little creatures are lurking in our cupboards. No wonder our grandparents used the toxic napthalene flakes,which I would never use and can't stand the smell. I've heard that borax sprinkled around deters them though.
