Scarf's Done!

I finished watching the "Shada" story last night, and I had cast off my scarf earlier in the evening. I was working in the loose ends of all the color changes. There are a lot of those: 52 in all, and 2 colors per, plus the ends at 1 each. I did the tassels tonight. Right now it will go over my shoulders and about to the floor on both sides without wrapping around my neck. Stretching will make it a bit longer. Pix to come.

Totals: 1,042 rows at 60 stiches each, plus cast on/cast off, is 62,640 stiches. I used 220 yard skeins in seven colors. I used over a full skein of green and tan, and almost a full skein of grey. Purple, red, brown, and yellow still have a bit more left each, with yellow being the least used.

(I know I haven't been posty lately, and sometimes not even really commenty. I think I'm sliding back into depression. I'm thinking about asking my doctor for a Rx. We'll see.)

(It's good to be able to recognize these things about ourselves. Even better to not self-medicate.)

Your scarf sounds awesome!
I can't wait to the pics (or to see it live).
It sounds pretty long. How many yards is it?

(We should get together and play "High School Drama" or " Gloom" sometime.)

I'm not quite sure about the length. I'd guess 10 feet right now, but the cat's using it as a bed. It'll stretch a bit.

I'm booked for this weekend. I'd love to play, though! :)

Wow! That is pretty long. I wonder how long it will get after it stretches.

Your cat sleeping on the scarf as a bed sounds really cute!
You should take a picture of that. I could just a imagine an LOLcat based on it, with captions like "I am time lord", "Stole this from Doctor, watch for Tardis", "This belong to dr who?"

Yeah, we will have to work out a time to play those games. That would be fun!

I hope you have a good weekend.

Heh, I read you had "cast off your scarf earlier" and I wanted to offer words of encouragement, such as, "Don't give up! You can do this! Just take your time.." and then I remember the term "cast off" has something to do with yarn an pokey things and I thought that maybe you hadn't thrown it away from you, after all.

Yeah, silly knitter jargon.

Don't be a knit-wit. Take this purl of wisdom. Cast off your fears and troubles. Etc., etc....

Hehe.
