This project is in the section of 8 hrs or more projects in the Last Minute Knitted Gifts book and for good reason. Although the pattern is super simple, it took me forever to fnish it. I think the whole repetitiveness of the stitch pattern made it dull and I just couldn't pick it up for more than a few minutes at a time. This weekend however, I was home, sick. I couldn't handle anything too complicated and this scarf was the ticket. I believe I knitted half the scarf from Friday til Sunday.
Although it has been one of my longest projects, I am in love. I love the colors. I love the softness. I love the way the stitch pattern looks. The ondulating effect at the ends is also one of my favorites! In three words: I love it!
I can't wait to wear it outside...all the time! I'll try to grab hubby so he can take a picture of me wearing the lovelyness!
Yarn: Koigu in colors: 100L & 105D (1.5 skeins of each color)
Modifications: Made it a little shorter than what it calls for in the pattern. I am short, so I don't need such a long scarf. It is only 70 inches long.
