I finished that darned scarf over the holiday weekend. Can you believe it? I can’t believe it.
I should probably have waited until later today to take the picture. Get some good, raking light to create shadows on the cable, make it look all dramatic. But I have a JOB and WORK TO DO and I really can’t just sit around waiting for the light to be “just right.”
Also, it rained for the last 24 hours straight. It may well be raining again by the time the light is coming from the right angle. So forget it.
That’s a little better. Plus in the background you can see the tracks of the chicken tractor. That’s one pass up the yard, and one pass down. Quite a mess.
This is a pretty good pattern, all things considered. I made a change to the cables, so that they cross “correctly” in my estimation. (Rows 6 and 14 I changed C4B to C4F.)
The edges flip in like crazy, but you just have to accept that. The ends look raw – the pattern just stops. If I was going to do it again, I’d try adjusting the number of stitches and starting with a band of the basketweave that travels up the side. Use that as a frame, so to speak.
Oh, and another update: I ate both of those boxes of Kraft Mac and Cheese. The answer was so obvious, once I stopped to think about it: Huy Fong Chili Garlic Sauce.
