The 3 1/2 Year Scarf

It's sizzling hot here in Northern California today, the kind of day where you stay inside with the air conditioning blasting and a bowl (or a tub) of rocky road ice cream on your lap.
Definitely not knitting weather.


However, early this morning I finally finished knitting this scarf, which I started in February of 2012.
I've always known I'm a slow knitter, but 3 1/2 years for a simple drop stitch scarf is a record for me.
In any case, I'm pleased with how it turned out and might actually keep it for myself. The yarn is hand painted silk and so soft and lovely. It's fingering weight that I knit with a size 8 needle.
Hope you are staying cool.

Oh, but those 3.5 years were worth it, that is one gorgeous scarf.
It's not knitting weather here either, but I keep at it and dream
of snow covered fields and a fire in the wood burning stove.

It's beautiful! I feel your pain -- sometimes projects just get put aside for other things and we can't seem to bring them back to the top. Congrats on a lovely finish!

It has been super hot here too. The silk looks really nice. I'd say keep it for you!
