Kitty: WOHO 118in of ruffles

Well as MeowGirl had eluded, the ruffle scarf has been done for awhile. WOHO.... 118 inches of ruffles using 4 skeins of yarn. This scarf really is amazing to knit; fast, easy, and wondrous. I can see why everyone is going crazy for ruffles. Though several people who have seen it really think it takes on a more organic intestines feeling than ruffles. Either way our first Knit Buddies project is complete.

I was really trying to have it complete up until the last brown section before MeowGirl to finish it before she went back to Berkeley, but alas she had to work on the second to last stripe the night she left. I thought it would have been great since she started it to have finished it. But alas my plans were not a reality.

Could it also be I have finally found a complete set of the clover plastic needles? Look at those colours. Look how cute. Ok I am in love with my needles I admit it. I even ordered sock yarn today. I figured if I own the perfect sock needles I should knit myself a pair of socks. Now I really regret not signing up for sockapalooza. But I have to honest Sweet Georgia's socks have taken me over the edge in ordering yarn.

Please let us know what you think of the needles. Do you lovethem, are you upset they have been discontinued?

I googled until I found one store that was still had them in stock. Marr Haven Wool Farm

They were great! The needles arrived quickly and with a really nice note about the store/farm. I was also really interest when I was reading the review about there yarn. As you know Organic yarn is a major source of interest for both MeowGirl and myself. I don't know about you but I really don't need any more chemicals in my life. And after 2 years of Textile Chemistry and

3 years of Organic Chem I really don't need to know any more about the chemicals I am wearing. Check out the link to see the yarn. I just wrote them back and they were nice enough to say they would send me a colour sample. YEAH!

  1. hi- seeing the needles on your sight made me want to try them out (esp since they were being discontinued) so i bought a set of the 8" needles. they only came in sizes 4, 6, 8, 10. if i like them i might snap up the 12", too. i'll let you know how they work out.

  2. Please let us know what you think! Glad you were able to find the 8 inch ones still. Correct to the best of my knowledge they were only available in the 4 sizes in 22cm and 30cm lengths. I really hope you enjoy them. I still can not believe they are being discontinued in the US. Kitty Kitty
