Squares in Variation 方块块

I'm still here and still posting pictures. If you are like me, mostly need to post knitting (or fiber) pictures, and those pictures are on Ravelry anyway, it's much easier to upload them on Ravelry first and copy the URL to Blogger. To copy, go to your project page, click on the small picture to bring up the biggie version, then cursor over the big picture, right mouse click, click on "Copy image URL", then paste that into "From a URL" when you insert picture to a blog post. This gets around the storage limit problem, and you don't have to upload the same picture twice.

Project: Squares in Variation
Pattern: Chameleon Scarf by Lorilee Beltman, Interweave Knits Spring 2008
Yarn: Odds and ends of Noro and hand dyed yarns
Yardage: A big bag
Needles: Size 6 and 8
Cast on: November 12, 2012
Notes: This is a Christmas gift for my son's music teacher. It's going to be colorful and playful, I think it suits her charming personality. The squares are done on five double point needles, casting on from the outside edge, decrease every other row till there are six stitches on each needle, cast off. Very simple and straight forward, except for the cast on is a bit of a challenge, and you have to do that many times. I have less than three weeks to finish it, think I can manage?

Happy Fiber Arts Friday! Join the party on Andrea's blog and leave me a comment!

This looks warm and cosy. Have a nice weekend. Regula

Very interesting; I think you can finish in time as each square should go very quickly. Can't wait to see it!

That's quite a coup... linking from Ravelry. :-)

I think the scarf looks like a lot of fun.

Love the concept and all the colours you've chosen, should be a funky scarf when finished. I'm sure you can finish on time, and you just reminded me that I need to get on with making some gifts for Ellis's teacher!
