896 Square Inches
Joy of joys, the scarf that never ends is done! I've been a busy bee on it this past week, trying to get it off the needles. I cast off on Sunday at Knit Happens, and took it home to block:
The pattern really spread out, and became lovely and squooshy and textured.
And then I spent late night last night adding fringe. [I thought I'd gotten out of the fringe when I ran out of yarn, but I found the leftovers from this scarf and added the fringe at JT's request.] Nice long fringe, 4 pieces of yarn per fringe-knot. [The fringiness is largely due to Phyl, Holly, Aimee and Jasmine, who advised me on all things fringe. It was my first time in the fringing fray.]
Here it is modeled on one of the shop forms:
And here it is modeled on JT, who has a cold and therefore would only sanction a photo from the neck down. But he loves the scarf, and wore it proudly to work today. [And it looks smashing with his leather jacket.] Awww, seeing how much he likes it makes it all worthwhile.
