And here's the looong, skinny, garter-stitch scarf I finally finished. I bought the yarn four years ago, right before I gave up knitting. So when I decided a couple of months ago that I wanted to start again, I was going through all my knitting stuff and found this yarn, along with the receipt dated four years ago.
I'd always loved this yarn and thought it was beautiful, so I promptly started knitting it up. I tore it out several times because I wasn't getting the right effect. I finally switched to size 10 needles and kept it real skinny, and I love the final product.
I finished it literally the day before our last cold snap and got to wear it once.
