Lemonade, Part 2

I finished the scarf/shawl that I've been working on since January.


My math turned out to be correct. I did finish off the third skein with a scarf about 66 inches (168 cm) long. So, as I explained last week, I used that fourth skein (with its color a little bit off) to do a little border thing on the top and bottom.


It's kind of hard to see that the edges are just a little bit different. So, success. I managed to make it all look deliberate.


Once I finished off the top and bottom, I single crocheted around the whole thing. In the above photo, you might be able to see how the edges are just a little bit different. But it looks good, and I'm happy with it.


And because it was requested, here I am wearing it, so you can get an idea of what it looks like on a person...


There you have it. My Christmas presents for 2019 are now all finished. All that's left is to get this into the mail and to my sister-in-law. Just in time for spring...

  2. It looks warm! Though I'm guessing it would be too hot for you to keep it on longer than for the photo. :)

  9. This is pretty and I can see the difference in height if that makes sense. I love it. This will keep her warm

  10. It's very pretty. I love the colors. Maybe it's a good thing it wasn't finished at Christmas, since everyone can use any extra little bit of happiness right now.

  11. It's still cool here. When it's sunny, the wind blows. That shawl sure looks nice.

  12. Oh, I LOVE that! It really makes me wish I lived somewhere other than a tropical god-forsaken swamp state.

    Thanks for posting a picture (and then telling me about the post...)! I appreciate it!
