It’s been a bit of slow going on my knitting, if I’m being honest.
There’s a project that has always been my Achilles Heel, and I have no clue why.
I don’t know why, but I absolutely detest making scarves. They always seem like a good idea. I mean, what’s more classic than a lovely knit scarf? I start off strong, then about 6 inches in I get totally bored and wander off to work on another project.
Which is bananas, because I just knit an all-garter-stitch baby blanket in about three weeks without any trouble. There’s no reason a scarf should take me as long as it does, but here we are.
This weird scarf hang-up probably explains why I’ve had this scarf on my needles in one shape or another for (according to Ravelry), more than three years. I’d get a bee in my bonnet to finish the scarf, but then decide I didn’t like what I was doing with it, so I’d rip it out, knit about a foot, then loose steam and put it away again. (And again, and again.)
But! I managed to push through this time and I’ve finished! I’ve completed a whole scarf!
And I kind of love it.The colors are bright and cheerful (sorry about the picture. It’s real cloudy here today-surprise surprise. But I promise you the colors are really pretty!) I like the fact that the colors pooled to make cute little stripes. I even like the thick-and-thin texture of the yarn, which I definitely did on purpose when I spun up the yarn all those years ago (*wink*). All in all, I think this was a very successful scarf project!
