Day 8,9, and 11


Yes, I skipped Day 10 in there somewhere. Or was it Day 9???
I'm slowly getting to this when I can, my insomnia has "passed" for now, so my knit time with other projects going on is not as plentiful! This is a BIG knit!
Realizing I won't have enough yarn has me also trying to figure out how I'm going to squeeze all my sections in. Maybe not as many repeats in some sections? Since I "ahem" missed one day, I have marked it and may stick it in in the end of the scarf if I have enough yarn...but it's not looking like I will. My yarn ball came from Estonia with a handwritten "gram" slip...and ladies at the yarn shop tried to help me convert it into yardage to figure out if I had enough for this scarf. When "WE" figured..it came out with 2 yards to spare...just enough. But I'm looking at how many days I have left, my yarn ball and I'm thinking it's either going to be REALLY, REALLY close, or missing a few sections. Either way, it's turning out to be a lovely knit, and I think I will enjoy this one immensely when it is finished. I'm just a bit behind my fellow KAL'ers. But that's okay, I'm drooling over their scarfs (some finished or close to it!) and I'll be straggling behind with the others who started late.
:)
Happy knitting ladies!

Don't worry getting behind, when you reach half knitted it feels like getting to a point where the knitting whispers to you all the time "you need to finish me - fast - don't you see how beautiful I'm going to be!" lol:.

You missed the prettiest section ~ the 'fans'! I'd skip a different day & definitely do that one ~ it's one of my favorites and completely different from anything else! Just my opinion.... ;)

Nice to have a post & pic from you, busy woman!
