Boa for a Scarf

It was like knitting one never ending string of false eyelashes.
Just look!
It is called Boa and it is made by Bernat.
It is 100% Polyester. Hand wash and dry flat.
The color is Phoenix, which has an autumn glow like a sugar maple.

I used size 9 needles and followed a pattern on the inside of the label.
The pattern was easy enough but working with this "yarn" slowed it down. The lashes tend to hide the main thread and can make it hard to tell where one stitch ends and the next begins. I found backing up hard and trying to experiment on a dropped stitch was difficult. My opinion is that you would have to pay me money to use this yarn again.

On the positive side, the end product is really flashy and perfect for fall fashions. It looks really nice with a dark brown suede jacket.

So why does the model look mad? 
She didn't get paid.
But at least she was able to go have fun later.

Thank you for stopping by.
