One Declared Done and Two Finishes!

In 2010 I started an Advent Scarf as part of a KAL and got through Day 16 before the December crazies arrived in full force, so I put it away, vowing to finish it sometime.  In the ensuing years, I've gotten it out and finished Day 17 and part of 18.  Finally this year, I decided it was time to declare it finished because it's now 84" long with 6 1/2  more days to go.  Enough already! It. Is. Done! (And I am keeping it!)




I also finished another one of these (Thanks, Mere!)



and another one of these:



That's 3 headbands from 200 yds. of worsted wt. yarn with a small ball left over.  On my needles are a couple more projects, a pair of mitts, a different head band, and a sock as part of Kirsten Kapur's KAL.  Fun!  See what others are knitting at Patchwork TImes.

That scarf is absolutely gorgeous. I love all the different patterns that show up so nicely with the solid yarn. Good for you on finishing up a few things. I am in the middle of the blanket and sweater so I am in no mans land.
Hugs,

Kudos for finishing your Advent Scarf. i still want to knit one, but NOT with lace weight: I learned that lesson the hard way.

Your Advent scarf is yummy, and very inspiring...maybe next year I'll take it on.

The textures on your Advent scarf are stunning. Good for you for sticking with it!

Aren't those washcloths fun? I'm enjoying knitting them, too.

Busy, Busy, Busy!!! Your Advent Scarf has such fun textures and stitches - wow!!! I don't blame you for stopping. I have to keep my scarves to a certain length or they overwhelm me. I'm only 5 feet tall, so clothes overwhelm me easily :)

The patterning on the scarf is absolutely beautiful. Gorgeous finish. What great yarn for your other two finishes, too. Lovely projects!!

I didn't get a football message off to you in a timely manner...but what about last weekend's game??? That was an incredible comeback for the Seahawks. I'll be rooting for them next weekend.
