the knitting's done


My scrappy scarf is off the needles, but with all those ends to be woven in, there's lots of work still to be done. But that can wait until tomorrow.

The scarf finished up at 64" wide x 8" deep before blocking. The final size may be a lot larger after blocking - we'll see. Originally I planned to knit to 9" deep, but I ran short of yarn so I stopped at 8". And that's okay; it's nice as is.

All told, there's about 140 grams or 575 meters of yarn in the scarf, leaving less than 50 grams of leftover sock yarn in my stash (not counting half a dozen full skeins and a bunch of Kroy sock yarn). That's pretty nice too.

Looks great! I want one! I've been satisfying my itch to make one by working on the crackghan

Doesn't it look good. I'll bet those rows seemed endless as you were knitting them.

That is beautiful. Really nice work.

I weave in ends every several color changes when I make stuff ... otherwise it would sit in a pile forever once I was done waiting for me to weave them in!
