Coming into the home stretch on the Rhinebeck Rectangle, and my pre-nostalgia for this project has already overwhelmed me. Oh, Spring Fever rectangle thingy by Amy Miller! You were with me on many phone calls, that binge-watch of The Americans, that midnight trip to the hospital that ended up being no big deal but at least I got to worry-knit through the freaky bit. I am going to miss you so much that I may make another one of you. While wearing the one I just made.
In my last post, I described this weighty worsted wrap as a scanket: scarf + blanket. Much derision over calling it a scanket! Suggestions that it sounds like skank, which most definitely IS a word in the U.S.
It’s not skankette, y’all! There’s a whole Ravelry page of options for that. It’s scanket: rhymes with blanket.
For those in search of name ideas for their weirdly proportioned knitting projects, here is a recap of the names suggested as better than scanket.
Blanket + Scarf = Blankarf.
Blanket + Scarf = Blarf.
Wrap + Blanket = Wrapet.
Scarf + Wrap = Scarap.
Wrap + Scarf = Wrarf.
Shawl + Scarf = Schawl. Scharf.
Scarf + Throw = Scrow.
Scarf + Shawl = Scrawl.
If Scooby Doo were a knitter . . .
