fit to be tied


At long last, here’s the oft-mentioned, never-before photographed, Jared-inspired scarf with Noro and a green "solid" from Philosopher’s Wool (left over from this sweater).

It’s been a smidge chilly lately, so the wool monstrosity has been getting a lot of wear. At just over 6′ long, it’s my favorite scarf, by far. It was knit over Thanksgiving 2007 in Eugene chez the in-laws.

Thanks, Leslie for the tutorial on scarf tying. I feel so French.

    The knot is great…but that scarf is now so on my to-do list. Great picture of your Mom, too. Hope to see you on Orcas Island soon.

    amazing tutorial on scarf knotting. i think that will be more comfy for me rather than doing the halving of the scarf and then slip knotting the thing. sometimes i think i’m choking on sock yarn when i do it that way. :o) that’s not exactly a bad thing, of course. and omg, that pic of your mum is wonderful!!!
    xoxo to the pooch. it was so great to see you last night…

    That scarf gets better every time I see it! I finished mine a while ago. I get a ton of comments on how great it is. Thanks for the help! I’ll send a pic. XoXo
