The Giant Scarf is DONE!

On Sunday night I finally forced myself to sit down and finish the “giant” garter-stitch scarf I’d stuck in a drawer weeks ago after having to frog it back about 12 inches. I am trying to work on the “error leads to disappointment leads to avoidance of the project” formula that seems to kick in. I’m including some photos of the frogging process, it was the first time that I ran a ‘rip cord’ in below an error and frogged back to it, so I took pictures to document it.

Here is where I got back to the rip cord


and here is a photo showing how wide the scarf turned out.


I should have chosen a different shirt to wear for these photos, I look like even more of a dweeb than usual!

I grew up in New England, moved to the Carolinas in '98 to start working at what was then a large regional bank and is now a really big nationwide bank. I work doing intranet content management and intranet site management. After work, I practice Aikido, knit, ride my motorcycle, read, watch movies & eat. I've been studying Aikido since 2014, and I ride a Yamaha V-Star 1300. I am pretty sure that I want to hike the Appalachian Trail someday.

  1. When I was first starting to knit, I went to the local Michael’s during a sale and bought 6 balls (or more, I don’t remember) of Lion’s Brand Wool-Ease Worsted Weight in “Wood” color. It is very “me” as I like the earth tones. My first scarf was done in it, but it looked “flat” in tone, this has a much richer look, probably because the high texture catches the light.

    I wanted to make this for my brother in law, who is a hunter. Wanted to do something “camouflage-like” without using that Red Heart camo yarn.
