I got this project when Mimi and I traveled to New York City a couple of years ago. Our guide was all of the knit shops around the city; we toured Manhattan from LYS to LYS, and in a wonderful shop on the Upper West Side, Knitty City, I found a kit for Multigrain by Antonia Shankland, this beautiful wrap (which I turned into an infinity scarf pattern).
As you can see, I’m pretty pleased with myself. (And I need a haircut.)
This was finished up at a knitting retreat, and the gals I was sitting near convinced me to convert the wrap into an infinity scarf. I’m so glad I did. I used a three needle bind-off to join the ends together, and even though the first row wasn’t live stitches, I poked the knitting needle through each of the stitches easily, so the 3 needle bind-off technique worked just fine. Here’s how it looks wrapped twice:
Wow, that’s a big photo of my face! But cute scarf, right?
Miles of seed stitch, I know. I worked on this on and off for about two years, and although it was tedious at times, the yarn was gorgeous to knit with. It’s a combo of three yarns, Shibui Pebble, Silk Cloud, and Cima, held together alternately to create a beautiful gradient combination.
This silvery-gray is probably my preferred of my favorite colors, dull, drab, and dreary. 🙂
