Leper Bandage Scarf
I could bore you with a tedious update about my new unimproved busy life. Let's just say my three year old asked me yesterday, "Momma, are we ever not going to be in a hurry?"
On to the knitting. Look, it's not socks! This scarf is the Leper Bandage pattern I featured a while back, for as much as that qualifies as a pattern. At first I though, well, I can't make that as a scarf, it's just too icky of a connotation. But a dear friend reminded me that it's actually a really positive connotation. The power of all of the women around the world making something handmade to help so many sick people.
Do you ever feel like making a garter stitch pattern is just too apologetically simple? I thought about it, but I think it suits this lovely soft Malabrigo. Plus a big stretchy garter stitch merino scarf feels great. And it's such a happy color.
This yarn was purchased in Chicago, knit into the Grownup Bonnet (let's not dwell on that disaster!), and then frogged and knit into this scarf.
Edited to add:
Needle size US 8
1 3/4 skeins Malabrigo
25 stitches, just like the original pattern
