As I was going over my old blog posts I realized that there is virtually a complete absence of finished objects. Some knitting blogger I am, providing absolutely no completed items for other knitters to look at. I have finished a few things, but one sweater needs to be reblocked (it multiplied in size after I blocked it the first time and it is now too big) and the rest were baby items that I gave away the instant they left the needles (hey, they're lucky I wasn't still knitting at the baby shower). No wonder I've been feeling so ambivalent about my projects lately, with no completed items to serve as positive reinforcement.
So, I offer you my first, real finished object for the blog. It's -wait for it- a scarf!! OK, so not terribly exciting, but it is my first ever completed scarf, and it's a gift for a friend. I chose the yarn specifically with her in mind (it will bring out her lovely blue eyes), and I really hope she likes it!
Pattern: 2X2 rib with 12 stitches
Start/Finish: Nov 4/Nov 13 2006
Yarn: Bouton D'Or Eskimo in blue (I used 129 yds)
Needles: size 11
Notes and Comments: This was really easy and fun to make and the yarn is just gorgeous
