Finally Finished Scarf

I finally finished the scarf! No, not that one. Or that one. But the one that I was making for eldest nephew's birthday. In December.

Ahem.

Yeah, it's only three months late...


But it's finished.


I had a couple visitors while photographing it.


...and...

Yup, the kahonks are back. (Why kahonk? Here's the explanation.)

It's one of those self striping yarns with very subtle color changes. It's hard to see from the above photos, but you can see it here...


So, now back to the other scarves. The ones that I've been working on since last summer. I'll get those finished. Eventually.

  1. Good looking visitors! I can see the color changes in it. Very interesting! Now I'm thinking he'll have to wait until next fall/winter to use it?

  6. It came out really nice, though, so at least there's that. The color gradient is so pretty! The geese approve.

    Do not mess with those geese. Just saying.

    1. Actually, it means I can get back to all the projects I dropped to get my Christmas knitting done. There's this Halloween mask...

  10. Beautiful scarf. Beautiful ducks. We have those in our pool all the time(not the scarf, of course).

  12. I like the self-striping yarn. I have some in the cupboard to crochet a beanie and/or mittens for myself (if I ever have the time). Looks lovely as a scarf.

  13. I love this scarf and the ombre effect. It looks nice and warm too. I could see the goose wear it next winter with a top hat:)

  16. I love the blue!

    If you don't mind me asking, how hard is to learn to knit? I'm trying to find a hobby that doesn't involve food (it's bad when your go to hobby is cooking and you need to lose weight). Knitting seems interesting to me, but I'm afraid it's really hard to learn.

    1. Not terribly hard. There are tons of videos online nowadays. I had the benefit of someone showing me the ropes, but there are so many self taught. And if you have a local yarn store nearby, there are probably classes.
