The Year in Scarf Form

Last year I knit myself a very, very long scarf. It isn’t quite Doctor Who long, but it sure is big.

This is my completed Temperature Scarf. Each colour represents a temperature range, from about -13C to around 29C. (I didn’t take into account wind chill or humidex. The temperature range in that case would have been between -30C and 42C. Crazy!)  It’s final length is around eight feet. I knit it using Bernat Satin, with some Mary Maxim Starlette for the grey ends.

I am super, super proud of myself for keeping up with the project for the whole year. I didn’t even procrastinate in finishing it up, since I did the last couple of rows on the morning of January 1st, 2014. Yay, me!

I don’t have any year-long projects like this planned for this year, except for the SALs I’ve mentioned before. And, speaking of which, I will be announcing the winner of the draw for the Ornament SAL tomorrow evening!
