Notes

Yarn choice and colors (except the green) copied from ashleyelva’s very helpful project notes.

Feb. 8, 2009 - placed order for yarn.

Feb. 17, 2009 - yarn arrived! Time to swatch.

Feb. 22, 2009 - I’m on row 114 - two rows from the end of the second purple section. I LOVE IT.

June 20, 2009 - I knit row 521, the exact halfway point. Very exciting!!

August 25, 2009 - On row 680 - 65% completed.

November 9, 2009 - Finished the knitting; ends and fringe left to complete.

November 25, 2009 - Ends woven in, fringe is on and The Scarf was lightly steam blocked.

Finished length without fringe is 10 feet 11 inches. I cast on 55 stitches and the scarf is 11 inches wide.

Yarn requirement notes:

orange - only needed the second skein for 2 rows and fringe

very little left of grey and green skeins

I used the yarn calculator on the site with the pattern and had an entire extra skein of every color but the pumpkin. I changed the number of skeins above to reflect my actual usage.

November 2010 - updated yarn amounts by weighing leftovers.
