DONE! and it’s toasty warm around the neck :) took me a year to get this back into the wardrobe. I loved knitting this pattern. Shouldn’t have taken as long as it did. The construction is fantastically fun. I’d absolutely recommend it.

10/20/13- Blocking… any day now…

8/16/13- Just waiting for blocking

I was able to get 3 full columns. The first time I made this I only did 2. But I had just enough…just enough to get 3. It was close.

8/5/2013- Working on this again. Finished 2 roman columns, about to start the 3rd. With only 1 skein, I think I will have just enough to do 3 columns, not 4 as called for in the pattern.

1/7/13- ripping back because it got an irreparable snag…

10/1212- blocked and dry. I need to get some shots of someone modeling this. It is nice and squishy. I only had one skein of madtosh, so I did 2 rows of roman columns before moving onto the next section. It’s possible I could have done 3, but I wanted this to be more of a scarf than a shawl. (and now I have a tiny bit of this lovely yarn left for a scrapy project :)

I really loved doing this project, because of the very interesting construction. The pattern is exceptionally well written and easy to follow.

10/11/12- Finished last night… I only have 4 grams left. that was a close one for me.

10/9/12- I’m at the edging. Hope to finish this by the weekend.

9/23/12- This is kinda fun. Mindless garter stitch for a bit, with some interesting increase techniques along the way.
I’m also fascinated by the next bit of construction, which I’m hoping to get to this afternoon.

For the Fall for Tosh Event.
