I'm amazed and just a little envious of the number of knitting bloggers who seem to finish a new project every freaking day. I'm lucky if I finish (anything other than a bookmark which takes 2 hours) in less than a month. I guess it helps to not have a day job. I work (and I LOVE my job, so don't get me wrong), and have my iTunes habit to support, so time for knitting is not in plentiful supply. When I retire, I plan to do nothing but knit and blog and have wonderful yarns sent to me for free by people begging me to mention their product.
This scarf was a free pattern I found on the Lion Brand yarn site. I used Berroco Vintage in coriander. The yarn is a very soft wool/acrylic blend that is machine washable. I had to rewrite the pattern instructions so that I could follow them more easily. You can find the pattern instructions rewrite on Ravelry. If you knit and you're not on Ravelry, why aren't you?
Off to dig out those other unfinished projects and make good on my New Year's resolution.
There's lots of love (and one or two swear words) knitted into that scarf for you, Dave. You must send me a picture of you wearing it.
