Sky Scarf - OTN

Sky Scarf
started April 8, 2012
finished January 6, 2013
After 273 days, this project is off the needles. The original plan was to knit a full year of daily sky colors. I grew tired of keeping the scarf up to date, and it became a drudgery; thus, I have a short scarf.

Previous posts about this project can be found here.

Update: yesterday I added a twist, grafted the ends, and turned this short scarf into a mobius. I will definitely wear it more than a simple scarf. I'll post a photo soon.

  2. What an interesting idea. I think it turned out nice, even if it is shorter than you originally anticipated.

  3. Looks like you had more blue sky days than grey. Even though you ended early, it still looks long enough to wrap around your collar and keep you warm.

  4. When a hobby becomes a chore, it's time to move along. 273 days is a long-enough scarf. I love the randomness of the stripes.

  7. The colors will look so good on you, and I think turning it into a mobius is a great idea! Can't wait to see you wearing it.

  9. You have me thinking this morning... mobius. The dictionary says this is a "wake-boarding trick with a flip and a roll". So, my question is, is this like a cowl? I know it is beautiful (coming from someone who LOVES blues)and it will certainly be warm. I understand about the boringness(I'm fairly sure THAT is not in my dictionary!)and drudgery. I did not think I would ever knit anything but simple, basic patterns, but they are not keeping my attention these days. I'm even playing with modifying and creating my own patterns(with lots of ripping out and trying again) ... who would have thought? Happy knitting, and stay warm!
