I started this scarf one year ago today. Aannndddd... I'm just about finished. I think.
It's almost wide enough. Although, what is wide enough? It's probably okay right now...
But I could do another pattern repeat. Maybe. Possibly.
Does it look like I have enough yarn for another pattern repeat?
If I had been thinking and planning ahead, I would have weighed the yarn before and after a pattern repeat. Then I could determine if I have enough yarn left.
But no. I didn't. So, I'm eyeballing this, and I'm notoriously bad at that.
I'm going to go for it. I might make it.
But, I'm hedging my bets. I've dropped a lifeline.
What's a lifeline? It's a strand of yarn strung through all the stitches of one round. So, if it turns out I don't have enough yarn to complete the pattern repeat, I can frog it back to the lifeline and bind off.
I may have enough yarn, though. In that case, all I have to do is pull the lifeline out.
Wish me luck. By the time you read this, I might already know if I made it. The next time you see this scarf, it will be finished one way or the other.
