so..I started to work on this scarf last summer…and, yeah!! I finally finished it. I’m actually really pleased with it. I did make a few other things in between, but this was always there, daunting me. I had many wonderful helpers along the way, ready to give me encouragement and advice on pattern reading, and demos on various peculiar (to me) stitches. Believe me, I needed these kindnesses.
The scarf feels light and soft around my neck, and warm. I can wear it in at least five different ways that I’ve discovered thus far, so I’ll deduct that from the time factor. What a lovely sense of accomplishment, though. Now I need another hand held project to start on. Quilting, painting, they aren’t very portable. I can even knit in the car…don’t try this if you’re the driver.
