I must shamefully admit that I *just now* finished the MWK Scarf Exchange for my (not so) Secret Spoliee! I didn't start the actual scarf until the first of August because I was doing a new technique for myself and I did a "practice" piece first to be sure I got it right. My Spoilee (who knows I am knitting for him, btw, hence the "not so secret") wanted a scarf 4 to 6 foot long... "The longer the better," he said. I was using a published pattern but I had to expand it out to accomodate making a scarf that was both large enough and one that I would be proud to gift to him. Well, let it suffice to say that, simply put, I suck at Math. So... the scarf just kept going and going and going...! It was the Energizer Bunny Scarf!! I was in communication with my Spoilee about the progress... and I did send him a fiber "Goodie Basket" on Labor Day as a gesture of goodwill. The scarf is now complete... I buried all the loose ends... washed and conditioned the wool (ahh, so soft!!) and it is now laid out on the blocking table.

I absolutely love this scarf! LOVE IT! I am praying that my Spoilee will be just as smitten, if not more, with the completed project. As for the 4 to 6 foot length he was hoping for... well, if he wants to dress up as a circus clown on stilts this coming Halloween, the scarf will be plenty long enough to pull off the look!! My blocking table is 8 foot long and I had to lay the scarf out on an angle because it was so long!! Woo-Hoo!!

I am posting a picture here of the snipped ends after I buried threads! No pictures of the completed scarf until my Spoliee gets his scarf. God knows the man has waited long enough... allow him a little surprise! I will be hitting the post office for Express Mail in the morning!!

I am guessing that you do

I am guessing that you do not reside anywhere close to a large city as they say your package will not arrive until Monday, October 13th via UPS.

My spoilee listed them as

My spoilee listed them as his "favorites" so I decided to do a pattern that I could incorporate all three. Surprisingly, I found it difficult to locate solid colors at the fiber festival. Most all of the vendors carried the varigated and hand painted yarns only.

Ahh, the poor guy got frustrated and sent the whole damn thing through the shredder...
