Winning the Unofficial Scarf War
On October 20, Meg and I visited Hilltop Yarn so I could gather my supplies for the Purl Scarf. Meg was in the process of making one herself and I was in lust for her new scarf. She told me that she didn't want me to finish my scarf before she could finish hers. That is when the Scarf War began as I can not resist a challenge.
And so last night while working on my NaNoWriMo Novel, I knit on my Purl Scarf when I needed a break from writing to think about the next step. In the late hours of the evening, I cast off from the scarf and abandoned the novel to attach the lovely fringe. I used three pieces of the yarn for each fringe "batch". The pattern directions do not indicate how much to use.
Destiny loved the scarf so much, she agreed to model it for me.
I had to wait until this morning to take a proper picture of the scarf in all its finished glory.
I think I won this battle!
