The First FO of 2010!

I'm not proud. I'll take my FOs any way I can get them. So what if this project has been on the needles for two or three or five years?



It's done!

The pattern is Nancie Wiseman's Textured Squares Scarf (Ravelry link). It's supposed to be shaped like a vee. But I made it a straight piece about two feet long. I'll get more use out of it as a neckwarmer.



The yarn is a thick/thin that I bought at Rhinebeck. No idea of its name. It makes a nice, dense fabric. I think I'll be a little rough with the scarf when I first wash it and maybe it will felt a little bit.

Stay tuned for another five years to see how that turns out!

LOL I've got a few projects that have been around for a while. Maybe one day I'll get around to them. ;-) The scarf looks great!

Done is always good. Congrats! I love the texture and color of your knitted neck wrap. I love Nancie Weisman's patterns too.

It's such a nice, cozy-warm, looking scarf. I like your version of the shawl much better. Stay warm :)

Well worth the wait, and in this cold I'd say the timing is perfect!
