A Christmas Miracle
I am proud to say that I made it to the finish line of the 2011 Advent Scarf KAL-on time. I only fell behind on one day-my birthday. Whew. It wasn't easy carving out a large block of knitting time during the holidays but I am glad I stuck it out.
This thing is HUGE. Here it is on only day 20. It finished up at 100 inches long and 16 inches wide.
I had it ready to be blocked by midnight on the 24th-that is the end of day 23, going into Christmas Eve. I had The Mister snap a photo of a very tired and unglamorous me with it so you can see how much serious knitting went into this project in only 24 days. Without TCM's great December lineup, I would never have made it.
Here it is on Christmas morning, all blocked and ready to wear. Too bad the only place I was going that day was ice skating and then to the movies and casual wear it is certainly not.
There are 24 gorgeous lace patterns in this thing-all of which are begging to be a scarf all on their own. I can't wait until next year!
