Two weeks in a row with an Unraveled Post? Could this become a series? I'm…
The never-ending, long-suffering Corrugater Scarf is finally finished and I love it. To refresh your memory, it’s my own handspun from Crown Mountain Farms Sock Hop Roving. While it was originally going to be socks, I’m not at all disappointed that it has become a scarf instead.
Can I just say, though? This thing took forever and a day. Never again will I knit a scarf on size 3 needles. Never.
On the positive side, the length is perfect and it’s soft and squooshy and I can wrap it around my neck and my face.
The obligatory reflection-in-the-bathroom-mirror shot.
And the also obligatory outside-and-I-hope-the-neighbors-don’t-see-me shot.
Both photos presented as a visual aid for those of you playing Rhinebeck Blogger Bingo. I’m a square, doncha know. I hear it’ll probably be too warm for this scarf and it may be rainy so I’ll be wearing a green rain jacket with a bingo button (courtesy of Norma) and I’ll be carrying a big-ass L.L. Bean bag filled with fiber.
Be there or be square.

That’s a very pretty Corrugater. It seems to be a wonderful choice for handspun.
I’m going to Rhinebeck too, but I won’t be there until Sunday. Have fun!
Sounds like you’ll be there AND be a square. Hee.
Lovely scarf and it looks wonderful on!
Have fun and don’t buy too much. (HAHAHA!!)
Beautiful scarf…love the colors! I can’t say I would knit a scarf on size 3 needles but don’t hold me to it.
Have a great time this weekend!
Thank you! I just this minute finished up a scarf & was wondering what I was going to do next, hoping to find another simple scarf & here you go and just hand me a pattern! 🙂 This will make a great gift scarf.
A bag full of fiber sounds like a wonderful thing to carry! 🙂 Have a great time!
Sigh – I’ll have to be square, at home. 😉 Nice scarf – which Sock Hop colorway is that?
I love that scarf! Have fun at Rhinebeck. I hope I’ll be on the same continent as all those fiber festivals SOMEDAY!
It’s beautiful! And the only reason I’m not crying is I already saw it(unfinished) and you this fall. Sigh….have fun y’all.
Beautiful Corrugater (love Paula) and those colours? Could they be yummier?
Keep a look out for Glenna, I do believe she’s a square also…
Have a wonderful time this weekend!
Pretty! And you’ve reminded me to go find a big-ass bag of my own.
Corrugator Scarf is beautiful! And on size 3 needles. Yikes! You’ve got a healthy dose of sticktoitiveness.
Corrugator turned out well. Yeah, those 3s get you every time. I just finished the baby kimono on threes…aren’t baby sweaters supposed to be FAST?
Bags full of fiber? Predicting the future, eh?
Ooh, that is very pretty! I love how the colors blend and stripe.
(My neighbors already think I’m strange, so taking pictures of myself outside would only confirm 😉
Love Corrugator…have a GREAT time at Rhinebeck!
Someday, I’m going to go…(please, God?)
I’m bringing a little tiny bag, because I don’t want to carry a big heavy one and stretch out the shoulder of my new sweater! Ha! I’m so vain. Good thing you and kathy always have those huge bags with a little extra room for my stuff . . .
Won’t you look cute, though! The colors look great on you and you will get a lot of use out of this scarf, but I’m with ya on the #3s. Have a great time at Rhinebeck.
It’s lovely!! Sounds like you’ll be having some of the same lovely weather we’re having… we did see the sun for 12 minutes yesterday (it was a fluke). Now we’re back to rain and the obligatory flash flood watch.
You put you time in on this one! Now, just enjoy it. Looks fabulous!
Looks terrific. I’m fine with warm. Rain — had enought of that in NH two years ago!!
That scarf is fantastic. I totally feel for you on those size threes! Yikes! It must have taken forever! Looks great.
The scarf is wonderful. I just love that Sock Hop Roving. Have a great time and, just in case you need to justify more sock yarn (as if), remember that the SM2 patterns will start rolling in next week. 😉
Great scarf!!!! I hope Teyani starts up again with her rovings…they are yummy!
One more sleep!
I do love that pattern. I’m planning to knit one too with sock yarn. Yikes, the knitting with size 3s or my equivalent is what is keeping me from starting it. But I will. Have fun @ Rhinebeck!
Great scarf. Love the colors!
Yeah, nice scarf, too. Have a good time this weekend, Carole.
Love the scarf! What did you say it’s made of, again? Your handspun? ;op
I’ll be there *and* be (a) square. Can’t wait to see you!
I love the colors of the scarf – but size 3 needles?? Yikes. Have a great time at Rhinebeck!
It’s beautiful – but why would you ever want to cover that face! Give Vicki a big hug and smooch for me and please have her send one from you back to me??
Well, the scarf LOOKS great!
Size 3 for a scarf? What were you thinking? I’m thinking it looks gorgeous!
It’s a gorgeous scarf as is your homespun!
dang.. I’ll be square.. can’t be there.
love the scarf.
you look mahhvelous darhlink!
have a grand weekend.
Mmm, I’m lovin’ that scarf…..
That scarf looks lovely, so soft and pretty.
Mmmm, size 3 needles. I bought some more size 2s the other day. Can’t have enough size 2s. It’s my curse of the loose knitting.
The scarf was clearly worth the effort, though I think it would take a lot to convince me to cast on a scarf using US3 needles!
