Knitting Project Confidential: The Reveal!

As I mentioned back in this post, my lovely sister was due a lovely cowl or infinity scarf for Christmas from me, made with this amazingly weird, super-slubby yarn (her choice):

For some reason, this yarn colour and design reminds me of H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu mythos….
cthulhu
This is Cthulhu. He is very, very, grumpy.

Well, I finished it in time for Christmas, and it was well-received! however, I had forgotten to take pictures of it and only shot some this week, so here is the final scarf in all its glory!

Sorry for the not-great pictures; it was late and we were tired…lol…

Anyway, sis says she loves it, and in the super-cold weather of Eastern Ontario (averaging -25 with the wind chill these days), she is super-glad to have it while mushing her way to and from work each day!

The scarf can be worn in four or five different ways; as a twisted cowl, as a shoulder-wrap, as this looped scarf, and as a long,un-looped scarf. There’s a fifth way that I can’t describe, which was shown to us on Christmas Day but I can’t remember for the life of me; it probably involves chanting to the Elder Gods and non-Euclidian geometry.

In any case, I have one more neck wrap to finish for a belated Christmas gift, and I’m working on an annoyingly challenging linen stitch scarf for my mother. I’ll post pics when both are (finally) done, hopefully by the end of next week. Wish me luck!

P.S. I absolutely did not buy more yarn from Michaels during one of their big sales this week.

…and by “absolutely did not”, I mean, I kinda did.

I regret nothing.  ;o)

    That looks super snuggly. Sisters have done well from Christmas knitting this year. Mine got a cowl/scarf too.

    1. Lol, family and close friends seem to be the “dumping ground” for all of my enthusiastic crafting projects; I can only hope I’m improving after all these years!

    LOL! Very funny post and ultra-beautiful project. We make cowls in central Florida for the winter and then fling them off when the temperature goes up to 70 F by noon…:) Can barely imagine -25!
