Finally Done!

Badger Red Scarf
Originally uploaded by lisamarie51

Not that I think you’re interested in my nerdiness, but I finally finished this damn scarf for Shrek. I think it turned out pretty good even if I did hate the yarn I used. I wish I could remember the name of it. It’s some acrylic thing that was cheap. The end result is a scarf that’s thick, should be washable and kind of pretty if I do say so myself. Sarge has requested a black one (he’s already got a multi-colored one that’s really beautiful) to wear for work and The Senator now wants one too. I do believe, based on my knitting ability that 2008 will be the year of scarf knitting but that’s okay. It doesn’t take too much thinking so I’m good at that.

Why call it the damn scarf? Because I have been hit-and-miss with the knitting so this is finished object number ten or so in the three years I’ve known how to knit. I’m not prolific by any means but it’s therapy and God knows I need therapy. The Queen’s been making fun of me because I think I spent six to eight months or more working at it.

My next project is a “keyhole” scarf for La Reina. Hopefully it won’t take as long!

  1. Ah, that’s nice. I’ve always wanted to learn to do that.

  2. I’m about as covetous of your knitting abilities as you might be of my ability to make jewlelry Lisa. That looks beautiful!
