I don't have any Christmas lights up yet, but I think this makes a rather nice decoration:

The ends are out of focus because it's SEVEN FEET LONG. No wonder it took me a year and a half to finish this. Between casting on and casting off, I got married and bought a house-- so I guess this scarf marks my transition from pretend adulthood to the real thing. One difference: my yarn budget. Dropping $40 on a project is no longer such a casual affair.

This is Alpaca With a Twist Fino-- double stranded. Since I am now a real grownup, I find it intensely gratifying that there is enough left over to make something else.

Oh yeah, these things are done too. Blocking worked some infinitesimal magic on the fabric that is pretty much impossible to make out in this picture. I still can't figure out how to photograph mittens. And I'm not sure if my deck is supposed to be that color.

I officially started my moniker project yesterday. That's right, 52 Hats is up and running with Felicity here:

I'm glad I started with something quick and easy-- it's way too early to succumb to the feeling that I am biting off more than I can chew.

Finally, can I just share how ridiculously excited I was to get comments on my last post? Yes, I am that vain. Thanks Paula and Stacey!


  1. Your scarf looks great! That one has been in my favorites for awhile, might have to actually get going on it soon.
