The Neverending Scarf
I am nothing if not stubborn! I have been working on this scarf for ten million years. Okay, that may not be exactly true. I think it has been 9,543 days 10 hours 14 minutes and 32 seconds. Don't get me wrong. I love the Fish Net pattern from Ocean Breezes: Scarves Inspired by the Sea. In fact, I love the entire book, and if you love scarf patterns, I highly recommend this book. The issue I am having is that no matter how much time I spend on this scarf, I still have a big old ball of yarn that needs to be knit up. ::sigh:: In all honesty, I would like the scarf to be a bit longer than it is, so I do like the fact I have enough yarn to get a nice long scarf, but, really, how much more time do need to put into this scarf? It is a simple two pattern stitch AND has lots of YOs. I should be using up yarn like crazy! Alas that is not the case. I guess I will continue to knit while waiting for therapy patients, while watching second years do clinic intakes, while waiting for lab meetings to begin, and while doing everything else. As much as I moan though, I do love how the scarf is turning out. Isn't it so pretty? I need to find a nice, neutral dress to make this scarf pop!
