Impulse scarf

I'm sure you have stood in the check out line at the grocery story and have noticed the last-minute little impulse items set up within arms reach.  You know like gum, candy, chapstick, etc?  I know your kids have noticed. (In fact our grocery store now has a family friendly isle, which is wider, and is devoid of all the sugary entrapment's, that the kiddies beg for while your waiting.)   I usually end up grabbing a pack of gum, or a nail file for my purse.
Well that's what happened to me on Sunday morning, in my sewing room.
I was still in my pajamas, looking through blogs, and just finishing up on the computer.  The plan was to go upstairs and take a shower.  But first I stopped at  Mereknits, who made this scarf (in fact, two of them out of pretty Noro yarn), then onto the pattern from Fiber Flux.  It called for sock yarn and an H hook.  Well, what do you know, I happened to have both.
Even better, I barely had to move.  I reached across the table for the hook, then reached down to my left and pulled the yarn out of the drawer.  Chained 200 before you could say "Do you really need another scarf?".  I finished it up by the afternoon, and  took a shower.  I love it when that happens.

H hook
Kaffe Fassett Regia sock yarn, given to me in a swap by my blog friend Katrin in Germany.  I love the blues and violets in this yarn.
Modifications: I added one more row of dc.

Go ahead.  Make one.


  1. Don't you love that kind of day? I do!! Such a pretty scarf. I saw it on Meredith's blog too.
    Also, in your previous post, looks like you have big garden plans. Can't wait to see and hear all about it!

  2. The scarf is soooo pretty, and I think the yarn is perfect for it.
    Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. Wonderful scarf and a tempting pattern, thanks for inspiring!!
