Much like I failed to correctly calculate the length of my afghan, I also recently miscalculated the length of this garter-stitch scarf I was knitting lengthwise. I'm not really sure what I was thinking or how in the hell I so severely erred when I whipped out the tape measure. But to say that it's "unreasonably long" is actually an understatement. I was going for a "long and skinny" scarf that seems pretty popular these days. I got the skinny down perfect: 4 1/2" wide. Perfect! The "long" part, though...yeah... It's over 150 inches long. For you metric folk, that's 11.43cm x 381cm (approximately). That's just absurd. Maybe if I price it REAAAAAALLY high, someone will buy it despite the nuisance because it appears much more precious than it really is. LOL I will say, though, that I liked the yarn a lot. Plymouth Yarn Kudo. Fun to knit with. Great colors and great striping.
