Finished Object: Scarf
I haven't been finishing many projects lately. Either they are awaiting that one final embellishment or I just stop working on them to pick up another project. I did finish my scarf for this fall about a week after I started knitting it, I just forgot to take pictures and post about it. Then it went missing in my own home; TheHusband found it for me hiding between the couch and the wall.
Last Sunday I took it out for a photoshoot (actually we were just heading to the park, I was wearing the scarf and grabbed the camera).
I'm really happy with the scarf, it is about 2 1/2 inches wide when the ribbing is relaxed, and I made the length long enough that it will wrap around my neck nicely but not so long that I can't let it hang open. And I keep getting compliments on it, which is really cool. Unfortunately this yarn has gotten a couple snags from the snag-free velcro on my favorite bag. In the end, I did use more than one skein of the yarn, but I had bought two skeins anyway, I just don't have enough leftover for a hat. (Reminder stats: Yarn-Lana Grossa Cool Wool Big, Pattern- Single Cable scarf from One Skein by Leigh Radford, don't remember the needles but that is personal preference anyway.)
