I have been working on this scarf for some time now, and it only seems to get uglier as I go on. I attribute this to the fact that it’s less than 3 feet long right now, and is thus too short to be considered “whimsical”. I am currently nearing the end of a very long grey portion, and I got the green out that Dave bought. I think it is a little dark for the scarf. I am going back to Michael’s today to try and exchange it. If that doesn’t work, I’m sure the yarn has other uses ;-)
Completion to Date:
40,320 Stitches (Almost breaking into the thirty-thousands!)
So, I make the mistake of taking my boyfriend with me to Michaels. As I am happily buying yarn for all my other holiday projects, he mentions how nice it would be to have his Dr Who scarf. He looks at me sweetly and says “I’ll buy the yarn.Pleease?”
How could I say no to that? $50 worth of yarn later (he paid), I had a very large bag of the makings of a 14-foot long merino wool scarf. Just to let my dear boyfriend know what kind of effort I was committing myself to, I did some calculations.
The Season 12 Scarf, knitted in worsted weight yarn at 45 stitches per row, with a gauge of about 6 rows to the inch contains:
The scarf will be about 14.4 feet long, given my gauge.
That’s a pretty big commitment.
So far, I have Completed
So, my boyfriend wants me to make him a Dr. Who scarf really really badly. In my eyes, however, there is a certain level of commitment involved in making such a long and tedious scarf (I HATE garter stitch!) Any suggestions on when I should start this project?
