peacock scarf

peacock scarf Originally uploaded by knitomatic.
for a more complete sensory experience i recommend humming Sargent Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (Beatles, Abbey Road) while you gaze. it was 10 years ago this June i babysat a certain toddler for a month before leaving to study in Italy. Kids grow up fast these days and just in case you're inclined to ignore it Jewish boys get a big celebration to remind you they're not so little anymore. hence, another project on the go ... a gift for my barmitzvah boy. unfortunately i didn't figure out what to make until after the festivities, but he won't mind, he never has. pattern: 'Child's Rainbow Scarf' from "Last Minute Knitted Gifts" by Joelle Hoverson adjustments: cast on 43 stitches to make it man sized yarn: Noro Kureyon in equal amounts of colour #40 (lighter colour) & #147 (darker colour). I estimate it'll take 3 skeins of each colour to make it a big man sized scarf that my kiddo can grow into.
