finished a norah gaughan scarf

Gregg's picture

well, after trying to make this scarf about 10 different times, I finally finished it and want to show it off just a bit. I learned quite a bit from each failed attempt, but I am satisfied with the end product. In fact, a few friends have claimed that I made it for them.
The most important lesson I learned was to not knit after 10 pm; and when I do - and I do, and I make a mistake, I just need to have a martini, go to bed and take a new look at it in the morning.

Thanks! Now that it is finished I'm making another one with minor changes. I'm using Lions 100% wool that I got at JoAnns.
Great photo btw --

Thanks Tom. I used a wool

Thanks Tom. I used a wool Lions yarn I got at JoAnns. It has a bit of variation to it the the photo doesn't really show. But I'm satisfied with the result and making another one again using Lions 100% wool in a cranberry.

Ooh, I love that book! Some day, I want to knit the Beagle sweater! Your scarf looks great; good job hanging in there! I've had a number of false starts on a scarf lately, myself.
