Honka scarf finished!

It's been 3 years and a few days since I cast on. I love the scarf, and I enjoyed knitting it but the next double knit project I make will not be patterned on both sides. I think I'll try for just a double knit fabric with one color on each side. I just think I'd like the  next DK garment to take less time to knit. ; )

Anyway, it's one skein black cascade 220 and two skeins silk garden, knit on size 3 DPNs. I have to weave in the ends and block it before you see a finished  photo.

That was the sum total of my fiber efforts last night. I decided to use the new year as my impetus to get walking again. Of course, that's just when Mother Nature decided to show us that it really is winter. It was very cold and hard to get out to walk last night, but I did it! By the time I walked, we ate and I did the dishes and took Bob for his fountain drink, I was tired and headed into bed. I finished off the scarf and then browsed Ravelry for a while before turning out the lights. I had been up since 4:30 AM.

Tonight I hope to spin another section of my grafton batt on the wheel before picking up the knitting. The knitting might be Bob's sweater or it might be the jeweled cowl .... not sure what will interest me tonight.

Have a good day.

You are on a roll with all the finishing! I haven't touched knitting or spinning in a week. The latest batch of fiber is being difficult to photograph, which took a couple of nights, and then a lot of things just came up out of nowhere that needed a ton of time. I have at least managed to sit down at my spinning wheel for half an hour tonight, but it's been slim pickings in the fiber department around here!

Can't wait to see your photos when the scarf is blocked. Double knit is one of those things on my list, but I haven't gotten to it yet. (There are so many like that...)
