OFF the Needles - for a change...
I am celebrating. Last night, after busting my fat ass on stuff for work all day, I decided I deserved to FINISH something. Anything. So, I finished Mark's scarf. He picked the two colors, a cranberry and a forest green, from a wonderful vendor at the NH Sheep and Wool Flood - er, I mean, Festival back in May. Of course, I can't find the vendor's labels, so I can't give much deserved credit where it is due - yet. I will definitely update this blog once I have the info!
Anyway, this is just a plain garter stitch scarf, but as you can see I knitted it the long way, so the stripes are vertical rather than horizontal.
My model is a bit on the skinny side, but the colors suit him, no?
Don't be fooled - this is only the tippiest tip of the unfinished project iceberg. From the half done Knitted Babe to the never even started Knit Pick lace cardigan I was supposed to start back in January, there are too many things to work on and not enough time to do them. Don't even mention the Cheetos sweater from hell - I'll start growling.
