Get Rid of WIP's - Twirl Scarf

This is the second scarf I am making with this Elle Twirl Yarn.  The first one was a learning curve, the yarn needs to be untwisted and then straightened as you go.  The first one I was naive and it was a quick and easy present.

This one, well I looked in Ravelry that I cast on 29th of December.  I finished it last night.  Yes it was irritating.  The twisting of the yarn no matter what I did to try and avoid it or reduce it, drove me NUTS!  You can't take your eyes off it for a second as you have to straighten the yarn with your right hand before finding the right loop to put the left hand needle into! 

All in all!  One scarf out of this would have been bliss.  Beautiful presents made. But will never do it again!!!

BUT WOW I got another WIP done!  I have one more for this month and then onto new adventures. 

I love reading all your blog posts, they really make me smile and I look forward to my morning coffee and blog reading.


  1. Wow, you're really blasting through the outstanding WIPs! Those scarves look pretty, but I made a similar type on a while back and never again ;)

  2. Saw this on Instagram this morning and just wanted to say again how much I like this scarf! This yarn is so hard to work with, I know, so kudos to you! :)

  3. Lovely scarf! I must say I don't think I'd work with that yarn. I bet it was frustrating. You are really working hard to get your WIP's done!

  4. The scarf looks lovely but I can only imagine how annoying it was to work with. Congratulations on your burst of WIP completing energy!

  5. Heavens, you are diciplined to get all of these WIP's done and very beautiful they are too ... all of them.

    Its funny but they had the curly yarn on offer at the wool shop... now I know why BUT the result is amazing and in my opinion well worth it.. thanks for popping into my blog by the way .. helen x

  6. What fab colors ! And the end result is very pretty :-)
