The scarf is done! I gave it to Eric, who put it on, wrinkled his nose, and asked, “Do you think it’s too long?”
I had to restrain myself from grabbing a pair of scissors and simply slicing off a few inches of the scarf in spite, and then watching it unravel.
I tried to get an “action” shot of Eric as he usually is on a Saturday morning, but my artistic integrity was interrupted.
I love this scarf-here’s a detail of the cabling:
This tweed looks so pretty with the pattern. Perfect for the lounging intellectual reading some relaxing Plato on a Saturday morning.
Pattern: Dryad by Jared Flood
Yarn: Takhi Yarns Donegal Tweed, 4 skeins
Preblocked the scarf was 9″ by 72″, post blocking it’s 9 1/2″ by 80″. So yes, a bit on the long side but not really for someone who’s as tall as Eric.
I did pick up that sweater I’d been a bit bored of, so will try to get that one done before too long. And then apparently I have to teach someone how to make a sweater with a wolf on it, which as we all know is the sign of an ultimate weirdo, so I may have to refuse for the person’s own good.
