Hey, look, a scarf!

2009 Finishes: Knitting

Apparently I still knit!

Broken Garter Scarf

Clapotis and I had been very monogamous for quite a while, but then I got to the point at which I felt like it would just NEVER END and I needed to do something else or I'd lose my mind. So I figured I'd do a nice quick scarf for charity for some immediate gratification and warm fuzzy feelings, and here it is. It's Lion Brand Vanna's Choice, which I've found to be a surprisingly decent basic acrylic, in broken garter stitch on size ten needles. Two balls; I just knit until the yarn ran out. Nice and simple and satisfying. Oh, and I think the color is "dusty blue." I know the color in the picture isn't great, but a glance at the ten-day forecast tells me that the color in the picture won't be great for at least a week or so, so I decided to just go for it. Ravelry page here.

So I finished the scarf on Monday, took out Clapotis, turned to Caitlin, and asked permission to start the decreases. We agreed that it was long enough, so now I am decreasing, and therefore seeing actual progress, and therefore enthusiastic about it again. Wheee.
