2 years and over five feet of garter stitch. . .
. . . that's what it took to finish this scarf!
The pattern is Rock Star from the Fall 2002 Knitty. The pink yarn is lovely solid color sock yarn from a LYS, Mind's Eye Yarns. The novelty yarn is JoAnn's Sensations Castaway yarn. I used size 3 straight Clover Bamboo needles. I started this in July 2005 and just finished it yesterday!
I had several fits of "frog or finish" on this. It was just so bloody boring! It also wasn't always a movie-watching knit because the Castaway yarn is so wispy and loopy that I had to look while knitting. I'll wear this often, but I won't knit it again unless my mommy really wants one. Naw, I'd just give her mine.
The only thing more boring than knitting it is weaving in the ends. Look at what I ended up with:
So, the only other thing I have on the needles is my lace camisole from Vintage Knits, and that's turning into a "frog or finish?" knit. I started that in July 2006, so I have another year to decide. . .
