This was my fourth year taking part in my knitting group's annual Anniversary Scarf Swap (here you can see my scarves from 2010, 2011, and 2012). This year I knit a scrappy scarf using leftovers from my Rainbow Blankie (that still remains unfinished, ugh). I had to knit on this exclusively for about two weeks to get it done in time. The final measurements were approximately 65" by 5", so it was fairly large. I think I cast on somewhere around 450 stitches!
Pattern: Mini Mania Scarf by Sarah Core (free download on Ravelry!)
Yarn: Various fingering weight scraps, all superwash
Needles: US6 (4mm)
Began: January 2
Completed: January 21
In my attempt to appreciate my son's babyhood I snapped this picture on a day when I was (a) exhausted from being up six times the night before and then (b) he wouldn't nap in the afternoon and was up until 4pm! I remind myself that this time is SO fleeting and someday he's going to be a big boy and I will miss this time.
And look how happy he was to be up for 6 hours! They do eventually sleep through the night, right?
And one last thing, I'm tweeting now! Or I will once I have at least one follower :)
