Finally finished the Sari Silk KAL scarf. To be honest, even though this was an easy, mindless pattern, it got seriously neglected until this weekend when I decided to just finish and get it over with. Truthfully, my opinion of this project hasn't changed much since I first posted. I still like this pattern, I still love the feel and heft and drape of the yarn, and it was actually pretty fascinating to watch these beautiful, vibrant colors slipping past my fingers while knitting. For the life of me, I can't figure out why I'm not madly in love with this scarf, but I'm not.
These colors are very beautiful, aren't they?
My theory right now has two parts. The first is that I think I would like this better if it leaned more to one family of colors, instead of literally being ALL colors. I'm embarrassed to admit that because I thought one of the things I loved best about this yarn was that it was every color in the rainbow. If I were to make this (or something like it) again, I would most likely spend some time trying to find a skein or two that has some color focus. I will also say that I think this yarn would make a pretty kickin', funky, sexy (in that casual-Meg-Ryan-bed-head-way) little wrap/shawl/poncho.
The other part of my theory is that I really need to see it working in/with an outfit. I'm betting that will go a long way towards acceptance as well.
Tonight it will get a quick rinse and light block and then it will be ready to hit the streets.
