Rapunzel Scarf Start

IMG_8275

Just the other day, I started this Rapunzel Scarf after seeing it on the cover of Crochet Accessories 2011 magazine. The issue, I had gotten for free with a gift certificate from Zinio. Not too sure what else I'd make in the magazine issue, but this scarf, I drooled over. (Originally thinking it was a cowl, by the way it looked on the cover. Totally thinking of making it as a cowl, next).

Love the color of the yarn and I’m loving this scarf so far. I've even learned a new technique, how do Foundation Double Crochet (fdc). It's a pretty cool technique! (It's kind of like doing a long tail cast on, so you're first row is done).

I bought this yarn from Ariadne before they closed and the two skeins that were skeined, are new, but it seems the one that I bought in the cake (it was apparently wound into a cake but then decided to sell it instead of keep it), I thought was brand new, but now using it from the center pull ball, it seems that the yarn was already knitted up, as it’s all wonky from being frogged. I'm not to happy about this, as I was told it was brand new, but I'm hoping that while working with it, it's not affected. So far, you can't really tell from what I've crochet, that the yarn was used. (And I'm holding it double stranded).

I've got 2 of the 5 stands worked up. This seems to be going fast!
