Scarf Travels – International scarf section three

beekeepers scarfI received the next scarf in the International scarf travels group on Ravelry, ready for me to knit section 3. I have to say this is becoming more and more exciting because each scarf that arrives presents a different challenge. I am learning so much and stretching my abilities, learning new stitches, techniques, and experimenting with colours and texture. However, the main challenge I have is actually trying to keep the scarf width even. Most of the participants are in the USA, but some are in Europe, New Zealand and Australia and consequently we have the differences in knitting and crochet terms, plus the different yarn gauges to contend with. We have tried to iron out these difficulties but it  is still a problem as can be seen in my attempts as well as some of the other scarfs. Perhaps we’ll get better as we go along. Anyway, this is scarf three which will eventually belong to a lovely lady who lives in Illinois.All three sections have been knitted in various yarns by Noro.
