Stayed home sick yesterday. The upshot of that was finishing the scarf. AND, though I was worried that it was going to be too short, it came out WAY longer than it was supposed to. Which is even better in my book. In this picture, you can see another use I discovered for the scarf. (I know, I need to work out....but I'm sick, so you'll be cutting me some slack, thank you)
When I finished it last night, I spent a good half an hour playing with the scarf, admiring it's many excellent qualities. It's stretchy! It's warm. It's long. And I made it all myself.
Which is why there are a lot of holes in it. It looks like maybe the moths got at it. But not from a distance. I plan to study the holes to see what I did wrong, since my learning curve is recorded on it as weather is in tree rings. I knitted the long way, so each row took me about a half an hour to complete (300 stitches) and at the beginning, the rows look really mangled, but toward the end, they are mostly error free.
I'm toying with the idea of joining the Knitting Olympics, what's the next easiest thing to knit after a scarf? I'm thinking maybe a cap.
Happy HNT !
