Sky Scarf 2012

It took me a few days to get the blog post together, but I did complete my Sky Scarf on the 31st. It is awesome! It really did serve its purpose of making me more mindful of the weather (and noticing how much it really does affect my mood) and serves as a nifty souvenir of 2012. It turned out really super long:

But luckily I intended to connect the end and wear it as a big, showy cowl. As an added bonus, I get to look at a much larger proportion of the stripey goodness all the time.

I’ve worn it out in public twice now, and raised surprisingly little interest. There was one fellow knitter (apparently) among the parents dropping their kids off at work who latched on right away to the fact that I’d probably made it, but most people haven’t even looked twice at it, let alone commented. It seems off for a cowl (infinity scarf?) this massive and colorful, with such irregularly placed stripes and beads. I’m sure happy with it though!

    • A lot of people on the Rav board seem to be just writing down the sky report each day while they wait for their yarn to arrive. Others are waiting til their birthday or some other important day to start.

  5. OMG! It’s lovely! And I really think half of them are haters (lol) and the other half are just so used to seeing so many things these fast-paced days that they miss the truly extraordinary. It’s gorgeous though, so never you mind any of them. ;)
