Can't believe that this scarf represents about six months of my life in terms of creative work. Stretched out it's between twelve and fifteen feet long and mostly knitted in garter stitch with acrylic yarns.

Next project, ballet slippers!

EDIT: Fixed image link, added one more, hopefully.

I found the actual picture at the top of your journal..:

This is neat.
A great use of acrylic yarn, making such a long scarf affordable. And I like the colors you chose here, especially the multicolor fringe.

Admittedly I'm hugely impressed that you had such a big clear area to photograph your new scarf in. That's awesome.

I figured you meant to show us this picture and it really is worth showing that nice scarf off. I can't believe you finished it in just 6 months... but I tend to wander off and work on something else when I get bored.

There's a huge stigma against acrylic yarn, but I keep thinking, especially about scarves, "What if I sneeze into it?" So having it be something that can stand soap and water might be useful. My own personal scarf (also garter and striped) is alpaca, and even if I'm wanting a scarf, I don't wear it if I'm sneezy. But yeah, I'm not so keen on knitting with acrylic yarn anymore either.

(Sorry if it was weird to tell you I liked your hallway.... but taking pictures of things like this takes some skill and happenstance.)

Impressive! It's like a giant patience award. And well-done too!

Wow, that's quite a project! Very cool. And I love the colors. (I don't watch Dr. Who - are your colors the same as his or is it your own colorway?)
