New wave...gone wrong

Have realised that the New Wave scarf I am knitting has gone wrong, the waves are all on the same side, but I have knitted quite a bit so will finish it as I am doing it. The fabric produced is rather firm as I have used the yarn double, but it will be a perfect yule pressie for my elderly neighbour. He's 87, I think, next week. Think this version should be called Corrugated :D

Now I'll have to have another go at New Wave, and get it right this time. :D.

What an excuse! Am having loads of fun with the book.

The other scarf is not one from the book, but uses short row shaping to achieve the effect.

Over the past week I have made Flapper. I chose to do it with a pale background, so that the flaps expose something unexpected.

Am having a rest from scarves for a while, but think my next will be Carumboa? (hope I have that right, my copy is elsewhere at the moment).

OK, you may not be able to tell because of the yarns used, but this scarf is ARIA from the book. I love it to bits, felt just right, but have given it to a colleague who is emigrating to Canada. [can always make another one!]
In case the colours don't show true, it is a dark violet.
