A most epic FO

It hardly seems possible, but do you remember this scarf? I can go on and on about how long it's taken me, but the point is that I finished it! I actually finished something for the first time in ages! Yay for me! :)

But most importanly: big brother loves it!
(he refused to wear any other scarf this winter, insisting that he wait for the one I was making him)

Pattern: Attic24's ripple pattern
Needle size: 5
Yarn: assorted cotton yarns (mostly vintage)

Ik kan het me bijna niet voorstellen, maar ken je deze nog? Ik kan doorzagen over hoe lang het me wel niet heeft gekost, maar het punt is dat hij af is! Ik heb zowaar eindelijk weer eens iets afgemaakt! Yay voor mij! :)

Maar het allerbelangrijkste: grote broer vindt 'm prachtig!
(hij weigerde deze winter een andere sjaal te dragen en stond erop te wachten tot deze af was)

Patroon: Attic24's ripple patroon
Naald: 5
Garen: allerlei katoen garen (voornamelijk vintage)

  6. BEAUTIFUL!!!

    I am teaching one of my children to crochet. I think I should have declared it a Lenten sacrifice. LOL! Patience is a virtue, right?

  8. Lovely :)

    I'd love to create my own scarf but whenever I've tried it's been a disaster.

  11. Good for you. A great accomplishment. I have done some knitting over my life but haven't had anything to knit for awhile. I do remember knitting a fishermen's knit sweater with popcorn stitches. That was a challenge.
