I finished a scarf for a friend who is visiting tomorrow. Of all the knitting I do, Aran work has to be my favourite. I design my own patterns.
Here is the scarf:
And this is a closeup:
I decided not to add a fringe or other adornment as it stands alone as a classic piece that will match everything.
It is done on 33 stitches in Chunky Aran from my stash on Size 6mm needles. The cables represent my friendship with Claire, the diamonds my wishes for her.
I will transcribe my notes and post them here when I get a minute so that my patterns are provided.
This took 8 hours: 5 Daily Shows with Jon Stewart, 1 Grey's Anatomy with the grandgirl and 2 movies.
