Entrelac Scarf Progress, Final

Yup, final. (I have a theme going this week. Funny. It wasn't planned. It just happened that way.)

I finished it Tuesday night.

It's supposed to be 8 feet (2.4 m) long. 

How long is it? I don't know. When the scarf folded in half measured 48 inches (122 cm), roughly, I did the row of ending triangles. And I've refused to measure it again since.

(My sewing measuring tape is only about 54 inches long. I do have a hardware tape measure, but I'm not getting it out.)

At this point it's close enough, and that's good enough for me. I'm done.

It's needs a wash, and then it goes in the mail. And I get to move on to another project. 

In case you haven't been following along, I've been updating my progress weekly since I started this on October 10th:

  2. The scarf looks amazing!

    I love the feeling that comes with starting a new project. Do you have one picked out already?

    The last project I completed was back in July. I don't have high hopes for this year, but perhaps I'll surprise myself.

    Happy creating!

  3. Scarves always turn out either longer or shorter than I want whenever I knit. LOL It looks great, though.

    1. But is a scarf ever really too long? So, might as well go longer if you can manage it :)

  4. That is one long scarf. It is going to keep the recipient very, very warm.

  6. Wow, that's a scarf! Someone's going to be comfy warm, thanks to you. Did you happen to see the Etsy commercial for Christmas? There's a little girl wearing a huge scarf like the one you knitted for your niece last year. Every time I saw that part, I thought of you and wondered if you knitted it.

  7. That scarf is so beautiful. It's almost a vest, the way it looks in your pictures. I'm working on two projects - my throw and an afghan that started as a lap blanket for my late mother in law but she passed before I could complete it. Both are still in progress.

  12. This is just a stunner and she could curl up with it while reading a book or watching tv. I love it

  13. It is beautiful, and I don't blame you for calling the project done. She better be grateful. ~grin~ You're a true artist.

    1. I don't worry about that. If she didn't respect the work I do, I wouldn't knit for her.

  15. It's lovely, but I bet you are glad to finally finish. And I finished 2020, does that count as a project? It certainly felt like it! ;)
