The Darn Scarf is DONE. I ended up using 4 skeins of the Elann Highland Chunky Oatmeal Heather, 2 skeins of the Chocolate and 1 of the Chestnut. The picture to the right is how much yarn was left of the last skein when I decided enough was enough when it reached 98 inches long and both ends matched. It is now being blocked one half at a time, as the animals love to run wild and there is no place that is long enough to do the whole thing at one time and to keep the animals off of it.
I want to thank everyone who offered suggestions for adding to the other cast-on end of the scarf. I started by picking up the stitches on the cast on end, however it left a bump in the scarf which I didn’t like the feel of. So I put in a life line about 2 inches down from the cast on end, and cut the cast on row off. I then cleaned up the end, picking out all the junk and until there was one clean row and picked up my 30 stitches and kept on going until both ends of the scarf matched.
Now I can finish of the other scarf (the one for DD1’s boyfriend) once I gather up all the yarn and buy a new set of needles. My silly cats like to pick the yarn up in their mouths and carry it all over the house as you can see by these pictures. And then Lola (the Chihuahua) likes to help them out by chewing on the ends of the bamboo circulars. Of course, these are the circulars that are covered with the blue dye from the yarn, so I guess she did me a favor? Don’t ya love the 4 legged children in our lives?
It is warmer here than it is in GA, what is wrong with this picture?
