A Project I Actually Finished!



I know for a fact, that it is not as cold here in "sunny" California than say, in Maine right now. But it IS cold for what we are used to. (that being said, we are experiencing higher temps than usual. Go figure!) N. E. WAY...
I started a scarf with these new loom thingys that were on sale at Joann's Fabrics. I had to go to Joann's to pass some time while I was waiting for my computer to get discombobulated or something like that. Of course, I cannot walk into Joann's without walking out with something! It's just the way I am wired.
Yes, and so. I made this scarf and finished it, because, like I said before, it's cold...for me, here.
I love how it turned out, even though it is my very first attempt at anything on these looms. If anyone makes fun of it, I will challenge them to a loom fight, to see if they could do better. It only took me a few evenings of knitting on the loom, the weave is loose, but that is okay too, because the yarn is really soft and fuzzy, so the scarf is light and not trying to drag my head down.
I put the fringe on it this morning while listening to my girls argue over who used the last of the milk. I laid it on the table and trimmed the longer fringe lengths and wa-la, a nice, soft, warm scarf! Finished!

Beautiful! The weather here in Maine hasn't been that bad for November. We aren't complaining (which is a nice change since we complained all summer long about the weather!)

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hey nice job. Glad to see you stuck with it and got it done. Now me on the other hand would still be working on it years later. I am not good about finishing projects I start. Happy Thanksgiving!

Surprise!! I'm here after months of promising!! Okay,this scarf is beautiful. My one day SIL had a scarf on last night and yours makes hers look like crap. Can you knit scarves,like with needles? I know how to knit/purl but have never done anything.

Congrats on FINISHING!! We are so alike in that LOL
