Can't Elope Tonight

Knock, Knock.
Who's There?
Cantaloupe Who?
Cantaloupe tonight because Dad has the car.

Dumb joke I remember from my childhood.  When I saw the name of this scarf pattern, Cantaloop, I was reminded of the joke.  So now I say "Cantaloop tonight, Dad has the car."  =)

The Pattern:  Cantaloop, from Loops Knitting in Tulsa, Oklahoma

The Yarn:  Yearling, by Juniper Moon Farm
Needle Size:  I used a size 13, but the pattern calls for size 15

Any bulky yarn will work.  I looked for a bulky yarn in all cotton, couldn't find any, so I used is a wool cotton blend.


  1. That's a pretty scarf. Looks like a super easy pattern too, making for a quick project.

    Your joke reminds me of one my grandpa used to tell us:

    What's the honeymooner's salad?
    Lettuce alone.


    1. Tammy, it was a quick project--super quick. It's supposed to be a summer scarf (cotton), but I doubt that I will wear it much in the hot Oklahoma heat of summer.

      I like your grandpa's lettuce joke. My 12 year old tells jokes all the time, but I've not heard that one. :)
