SO- I have been knitting this scarf since Rhinebeck LAST YEAR! I bought the yarn there and pretty much began knitting the scarf as soon as I got it home. Then I started making Christmas gifts, and then we moved, and then it got warm. BUT now I have a date that it MUST be finished by- October 20, 2007!! And I can’t work on it in the car because I am driving up alone. I worked on it today on the train. Actually I had to pack a bigger purse because it was too big for my cute small purse. A real dilemma- I have to say. HERE IT IS!!
This is it all laid out:
Here is a close up of the yarn- such a gorgeous color!! Hand dyed, hand spun wool. Super comfy and cuddly. It turns me a little orange, and my knitting needles are definitely feeling the orange- I hope my neck doesn’t turn orange!
and here I am modeling it! It’s almost done!!
I can’t believe it’s actually so close to being wearable after not working on it for soooo long! That weird look on my face is- “Is someone going to come in here and catch me taking pictures of myself?” And that’s our break room at work behind me. Very nice. I am soooo excited to wear it!! People at work think I’m nuts because I bring in all of these different projects. I’ve decided that my Foliage hat is no longer suitable for T knitting, so I have my mother’s cowl (which is still in my suitcase for Georgia) that will be small enough at least for another skein and my Rhinebeck scarf. I am going to have to start another small project this week. OOOH- lap blanket for grandma!
