Another Double Border Scarf

Apparently....well.....I'm addicted to this scarf.....can't get enough of it. I had bought 2 skeins of Rowan - Kidsilk haze for a scarf...any scarf, just to do another one from this book.But no, what do I do...I co another Double Border....it's like I can't help myself. The yarn is such a beautiful color, more of a fuscia than I can get my camera to show you.

I'm about half way through and should just-about-have-enough to do 19 repeats (instead of 20) but I've also downsized the needle to a size 6 to help make the scarf long enough. I don't want to chance getting on the 20th repeat and to about row 18 then run out of yarn....[just my luck]...so I'll stop with the 19th repeat. This one is likely to go into the 'Christmas stash' too...we'll see.

I know what you mean, I love that stuff too, and I am just barely trying lace. I myself have 4 balls of some called Hurricane, 2 balls of Marmalade and I just ordered 4 balls of the color Swish. And I have yet to decide what I want to make with any of it, I'm just collecting!

Hm... 2 balls, 19 repeats... I think I must make this scarf. Thanks for the yarn maths!

Ina - don't forget to go down one size on the needle. I was just shy of 10 complete repeats when I ran out of the first ball. That's how I came up with the 19 repeats, which should be long enough.
