The other day I was digging through my big knitting project bag that is full of smaller knitting project bags and decided to finish this scarf. I really like the gradation of the black to white but this probably wasn't the best yarn for this scarf or I didn't start in a good place in the colors. It has a long repeat and the white section is right smack in the middle of the scarf. It reminds me of a skunk. But it won't bother me, I'll wear it anyway.
I'm using this yarn which is nubby so it gives good texture. I will NEVER buy this size skein again! It is wound so tight that when you pull from the center, you get the big gobs. Since this is such a huge skein, there will be enough leftover to make the Lacy Zig-Zag Shawl. I do have another huge skein in a different color way--black and purple--that I might use instead. Either way, when the shawl is finished, the remaining yarn of both skeins will be headed to a new home.
I'll be happy to put this one on my Sticks 'n Strings 2013 Challenge finished list. This will be UFO #5-Finish #11. It's looking good for me to complete 13 projects this year. I sure hope I didn't just jinx myself.
