FO: Cashmere Campanula scarf

Finally finished my Campanula scarf. It felt like this took forever, and how do you make scarf progress reports interesting?

knitspot Campanula scarf.

Pattern: Campanula from knitspot (Ravelry link)

Yarn: Jade Sapphire Silk/Cashmere 2-ply

Needles: US3 Blackthorn dpns

Duration: 14th June to 13 September 2010

Ravelry project: Cashmere Campanula

I started tweeting a fact for each number of repeats I completed, to make it more interesting:

  • A 7 sided shape is called a heptagon.
  • The Latin word for 10 is "decem", as in December, the tenth and final month in the Roman calendar before they added July and August in honour of Ceasar.
  • The atomic number for Aluminium is 13, meaning it has thirteen protons in the nucleus
  • A note played for 1/16 the duration of a whole note is called a semi-quaver.
  • The 19th President of the United States was Rutherford B. Hayes.
  • 21 is the standard TCP/IP port number for FTP connections
  • Motion picture film is usually projected at 24 frames per second.

I was hoping to get up to 27 repeats, but I was almost out of yarn at 24 and tired of the scarf. The yarn is very fragile, I won’t block it with wires, only minimal pin blocking. It is very soft, but the tangling of this skein, and reports from other people on Ravelry of their tangling nightmares mean I won’t get this again.

One thought on “FO: Cashmere Campanula scarf”

  1. I’ve given that yarn a severe blocking, and it was fine…so don’t be too nervous about it.

    Scarves are dull, but it is beautiful, and I imagine you will love it this winter!

    Love the facts!
