Let’s make a scarf, part 2

Another day, another skein of yarn. It was a bit of a challenge to switch to the next skein of yarn, so yet another trip to my trusty source of information on everything knitting was in order. YouTube came up with a lot of ideas for how to tackle this problem, and as always, people have different ideas on how to approach this, and some of them there less useful than others.

Eventually I found a video with clear instructions on how to switch from one skein to the next and I went on with Project Scarf. It was fiddly, and I’m sure I could have done a lot better, but I got it done, and could finally get back to knitting.

Hours passed and at the end of the evening I got to the end of the skein, now with another section of the scarf done.

The yarn switch is clearly visible. I botched it a little bit, but hey, it’s all a part of the learning process. Overall I’m fairly pleased with how it turned out. As long as it won’t unravel on me, I’m pretty happy with it.

Two skeins down, and from the looks of things, my tension has improved quite a bit. The difference in uniformity from the first section in the light grey to the second in a darker grey, to my eyes at least, is quite noticeable. Not bad.

Project Scarf continues tomorrow.
