I thought I would post a little update on how my Boteh scarf is progressing. I carry it with me most of the time, so if I have a chance to work on it I can. Unlike what I hear about most knitters, I rarely have more than a project or two going on at a time. It seems that the knitters I know always have several projects on their needles. I can't keep patterns straight if I do that much. Although I don't know why. I use quick hats or scarves as a diversion from a project that takes a longer time to finish.
Our church has an ongoing humanitarian project, and they need crocheted or knitted scarves to send to children in third-world countries. So I have a stack of acrylic yarn skeins that I keep around and just through a large-hook doubled-yarn scarf together. They work up pretty quick and don't have to be anything fancy, just measure 60 x 8 inches.
I love the way this scarf is coming together, once I got the pattern figured out. I had to frog two motifs (the third and part of the fourth) because I was crocheting in a circle. I had decreased down the wrong side of the triangles. I got it figured out and now the pattern moves along pretty quickly. It's really lightweight and I think will be really comfortable. I love the pattern and may make one out of another color or maybe a different scarf. The pattern in interweave used a fingering weight yarn, and this is just a little heavier (and really barely a little) than that. It is nice and soft and has a lovely drape.
