Montego Bay Scarf...

First, I'd like to thank everyone for the very positive feedback on my sock design. I'm actually making really good progress on them, and will be done both leg portions tonight.


I just cast on for a Montego Bay Scarf from the Summer 2007 Interweave Knits issue. I had heard about this scarf on Lime & Violet, but only got to see it in the magazine yesterday. I don't know why, but this has been a difficult magazine to find in Vancouver. I finally spotted it at Superstore last night.I still have a bunch of leftover Handmaiden Sea Silk in the Straw colorway. I love working with this stuff! I have about 25 grams left from the 100 gram hank that I used for the Shetland Triangle for my Mom. I also have a full other 100 grams of this yarn that Stu wound into a ball for me.
I wanted to take a few pictures as soon as possible, because there really are not many pictures on the internet, and the pics in the magazine are not all that representative.

The portion that I have completed already only took me about 20 minutes to do. So, I'm anticipating that this will be a fairly quick knit.

I'm going to head out to the Knitting Meetup group tomorrow night at The Grind on Main Street, so this will likely be coming with me.

That looks great. The picture cetainly doesn't show off how nice it is. What a shame. Thanks for sharing! I might have to give it a second look!

You're right - that doesn't look a whole lot like the one in the magazine. Lovely, though.

Hey I'm making the same scarf!! (I haven't posted mine yet) Yours is the only other one I've seen. It is such a simple pattern, but sometimes simple is the best! I think it will have a beautiful drape when it is done.
