Two Of A Kind


When I saw the pattern for the scarf Mondsee I did some stash diving. The best thing about that kind of diving is that I do not need a snorkel.

Although, there should be a kind of snorkel for stash diving - after all there are a very long way down to the bottom of it... LOL!!

Well, I started the first scarf with a thin yarn in red. I finished the scarf but the colors were not that bright to my taste.

And I wanted a brighter one with a bit thicker yarn. The first one is knitted in Holst supersoft and the orange one is knitted from yarn I bought in Riga and Finull for the colors.

And I really love that orange one. Often I knit in small needles for this kind of yarn, and for this one I would prefer 2mm needles.

But I tried 2.75mm and the drape is so fantastic. More smooth and soft and the yarn feels so nice. It is not that even knitted but washing do tricks with wool. Always makes the colors shine more and make it more even.

I added a little more length to the orange one with extra color sections. My scarves have to be wrappable. I loved knitting these scarves. The short rows are just enough to keep me from sleeping and the stokinette is always a satisfying way to knit.

If you want to knit your own you can find the pattern on Ravelry here. You can also see all the other different takes on colors for it - how much color do to a garment. Here is my red one - you can surely see the difference from the two.

Strength lies in differences - not in similarities
