The Scarf is Finished


Though for a while I thought the scarf would never be long enough for him, he pronounced it long enough at 5 feet. The original pattern calls for 32 stitches across. I made him a short sample and told him I could increase it in increments of 4 stitches. He asked if I could put 4 stitches on each side. I said no, but I could put 8 in the middle.
Thanks again to Beth for the pattern.

Though he was surprised that I wanted to put a photo on the blog, he agreed to take this photo for me with the new camera we gave him as a graduation/Christmas/Bon Voyage present.

I know I am taking a risk putting up Evan's picture, but he is 19, I have his permission, and he is about to leave the country...and he does have such lovely eyes. I find I can't resist.

  5. Oh yeah, the first thing I thought was "Great eyes", followed immediately by beautiful scarf.

    I am wanting to learn to knit -- I used to know basic stuff when I was a kid, My grandmother taught me. Last summer I bouth needles and some yarn, but that is as far as I got. Maybe soon I'll get a chance.
