like I said last week, I'm motivated to get a lot of things off the needles before year's end and this scarf was on top of that list. with a few days of knitting, the resulting scarf, over 6ft of it, is warm and cushy. my brother finally gets his scarf and I got to use the awesome yarntini yarn. I'm pretty sad to let this knit go, I'm almost tempted to keep it.
this was a pretty fast knit for me, I'm usually horrendous with scarves. it must've been the magic of watching all the stripes form, I just kept telling myself "keep going to the next beige" or "the next red/white/red combo!" the novelty of knitting a faux burberry scarf never wore off and I love how the deep ribs add to the plaid look. I just hope this scarf is stylish enough for the streets of chicago.
my wip's aren't the only thing I'm cleaning up. my stash has taken on, shall we say, massive proportions. my knitting definitely has not kept up with my yarn buying, though I don't remember when the last time I bought yarn for myself was. the yarn must just replicate itself when I'm not looking. anywho, the thoughts of moving have crossed our minds over here, as well as just minimizing how much we own. in looking through my stash, I realized there were a lot of yarns that I either had no clue what I got it for or I just kinda outgrew. if I hadn't knit with it in a year was I ever really going to? I decided what I wanted to knit in the near future and whatever yarns didn't make the cut are going to be on sale here. whatever isn't sold will be donated to a junior high knitting club near me. if there's anything you're interested in just email me or leave a comment, my email is on the sidebar. let me just warn you, there's a lot of stuff on that page so it may load slowly!
