Risking my life...

to bring you today's post. In case you're wondering, read here. It's a good thing she lives on the other side of the pond, because she might try to tie me up with that yarn of hers. Uh-oh, I seem to remember (vaguely) that she might have a voodoo doll.


Baktus scarf
freebie pattern here (ravelry link)
yarn: Kureyon Sock Yarn by Noro, color #S188
1 skein: 100gr/420m
needles: size 3 straights




If I go missing, knock on Annemarie's door first..... But I do believe I'm safe, last I checked she was contentedly slurping coffee and stitching ;)

Nancy said...

This is gorgeous Staci! I love all the different colors in the yarn.

Cari said...

Oh Staci, it is just beautiful. I could use a scarf today as they are calling for snow in our little part of the world.

Julianne said...

Staci,

Congratulations on a beautiful finish. I just love the colors. I hope it keeps you toasty warm. Enjoy it:)

Catherine said...

Lovely colors! Great job!

Paula C. said...

That is very pretty! I am, once again, tempted to start another project!

Siobhan said...

Wow, Staci! What gorgeous colors. Congrats on another fabulous knitty finish!

Redwitch said...

This is a great scarf, the colours are gorgeous :)

You're on a roll with these scarves. That yarn looks good enough to eat. Such beautiful colors. You must have the most marvelous yarn stash of anyone!

Kim B said...

Absolutely stunning Staci!

Nicole said...

Beautiful scarf Staci! You made me remember that I had a skein of this yarn somewhere. Congrats on another great finish! :)

Julie said...

Love the colours in this scarf, its beautiful

Kielrain said...

Bwahahaha. I do love your knitting too. I know better than to even try to knit anything. I still love seeing your finishes!

Erynne said...

It's beautiful, Staci!! :o)

Annemarie said...

Apart from oodles of talent, you also happen to possess an uncanny memory... I do indeed own a voodoo doll :o) Have no fear,though, I won't be using it on you. You're too much of an inspirator and all-round nice person. Annnnnnnnnd... I made some changes here and there and, well, I'm planning a blog post tomorrow about a certain new start (no finish yet).

I love, *love*, LOVE this Baktus. Beautiful colours. Do I see any more Baktuses/Bakti in your future?

KarenV said...

Gorgeous colours Staci, it's very pretty!

Hazel said...

Another beautiful Baktus. I have finished mine and I'll be posting tomorrow! x

doris said...

Oh, that's so pretty. I'll bet I could knit that (she said with confidence)!

corinna said...

great scarf
fantastic colors!

Casa Pearl said...

Oooh I love the colors of this. I must get this pattern as i've got a great skein of yarn that would do the pattern proud.

Hi Staci,

This is a beautiful scarf!! I love
how the colors flow one into another.
Actually it looks like a combination
of scarf and shawl which is pretty
neat. I've never seen anything like
it before.

Just read Annemarie's post. Oh dear!!

I can understand her frustration
because my dear Staci you make it
all look so easy and doable. Plus
you are super quick with starting
and finishing these things. You've
even got me thinking about taking a
knitting class, and I've got ten
very big thumbs to work with. Shame
on you!! :)

Your French Valentine looks
amazing! That V is such a
brilliant design. And your new
scissors are fantastic! I am
particularly enchanted with the
pair on the left which sort of
look gothic to me.

It's nice that you're going to
finish off the two "old"
Valentine's designs because they
are so sweet and it's a shame to
leave them unappreciated in a
drawer. Can't wait to see what
you'll do with them.

Cheers!

Lenka said...

The scarf is beautiful and I love the colors!

Meadows08 said...

Beautiful scarf! Surely ANY "dummie" can knit it!!!

Kathy A. said...

Thank goodness A's bark is worse than her bite LOL.
Beautiful new scarf.
Thank goodness I don't knit. I don't think I can fit in another hobby.

Brigitte said...

Oh so beautiful. When I see all the wonderful knitting projects on you blog and on those of other knitters I want to get retired as fast as possible to have more time for a new hobby, lol.

Harmien said...

Look out, Staci, that Annemarie is unpredictable... LOL!! But Baktus is gorgeous!! That Noro yarn looks very soft and comfy!

Lainey said...

Another gorgeous scarf Staci! I just love the colours.

Michelle said...
