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):
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)
