Knitted Scarves should be for?

2 knitted scarvesFinished 2 more scarves. You might remember when I purchased this yarn I blogged about how funky I thought it was. My intention was to make 2 fun skinny scarves for my niece for Christmas. I was patting myself on the back about how ahead I was getting. Not something I do with regard to shopping ahead for Christmas. Since this photo the one on the right is also completeled. Actually only had a row or two left; but had camera in hand for another purpose so took the photo a wee bit ahead of time.

My niece is tall, and young and I thought these would be fun to go with sweaters; more for inside wearing thus the skinny decorative. But, now that they're finished, I'm thinking of sending them off to Passions of the Heart; a charity for battered women. Partially because I think they're a bit short for my niece? Kids/teens wear scarves longer then we adults? Partially because I have time a plenty to make something for Christmas, and partially because I'm not sure these look youthful now that they're finished.

They measure about 4 inches wide by 56 inches long. They're light weight and quite stretchy so no doubt will grow as scarves have a tendency to. They were knitted on large #19 needles after all.

Opinions ladies?

  1. HI SANDY,
    BEAUTIFUL WORK, I BOUGHT YARN LIKE THAT,
    BUT I HAD A HARD TIME WORKING WITH IT. YOU DO A GREAT JOB. I NOW CROCHET WITH REGULAR YARN, AND IT IS MORE RELAXING. HAVE A NICE DAY. RIZZI

  2. Thanks Rizzi, but what do you think about it's appropriateness? I really am thinking about whom to give these too.

    I agree sometime regular yarn is just easier and more relaxing.

  3. It would depend on your neice. I know some teens at my church who wear short scarves for decoration or style. They wear them tied around their waists when they are longer. You know your neice best, but I agree they seem a little old for a teen, so the charity would like them. Do what you think is best.

  4. HI SANDY,
    I THINK ITS ACCORDING TO WHAT THE INDIVIDUAL PERSON LIKES, EVERYONE IS DIFFERENT. MAYBE YOU CAN FIND OUT HOW LONG YOUR NIECE LIKES TO WEAR HER SCARVES, WITHOUT LETTING HER KNOW YOU ARE MAKING HER ONE FOR CHRISTMAS. NOT KNOWING HER PERSONALLY ITS HARD TO TELL. RIZZI

  6. Hi Sandy,

    Thank you for commenting on the ripple....it is all left over yarn, well I did buy 2 new skeins as the stash is getting low and the balls real small. I'll dig up the blog where I found the pattern. I am unsubscribing from the Hive...it is not all that...and you play by yourself to get points for what? Even with the point incentive not many people interact. It isn't for me. Those things usually arn't...I should have learned my lesson. I hope that you do well there. So pop over to the regular blog once in a blue moon, and I will catch you here at your house. Have a good w/e.

  7. Sandy, it would be most fun to sit with you here, hearing the birds singing, the crickets, and gentle lapping of the water to the shore, with hook and yarn and bottle of good wine....ahhhhhhh....I get what you are saying...this venue gives good coverage for your bridge project..and I hope that it will do that...It seems to be more of a place for people with agenda's.there is nothing wrong with that..I don't have anything to sell or promote. Your bridge project is the most worthy idea there, and I hope it TAKES OFF for you using the HIVE. Keep in touch...I'll see you at the pier... what is a good wine to go with pepper jack from Amish?
