Day 23

The winner of a copy of the eBook Double or Nothing: Reversible Knitting for the Adventurous, a new eBook by Alasdair Post-Quinn is Annette Schipf, who has been contacted. Thank you to everyone who left a comment and told me which project spoke to you!

If you were not the lucky winner, remember that you can purchase an eBook version on Ravelry, as well as order a print/download combo via the author’s website.

It is December 23 and that can mean only one thing: I’m coming down the home stretch of my FrankenScarf. After today, there is just one more mini-skein each of Opal and Koigu to go. Miraculously, I have kept up, and I am currently knitting the skeins from Day 23 in my calendars.

On Monday a couple of my colleagues had some fun with the scarf in progress. Kate made herself a bit dizzy because she twirled into the scarf, rather than twirling the scarf around her.

And Leah had the same experience.

Both Kate and Leah were pleasantly surprised by how non-bulky the scarf is, considering how freaking long it is. By my calculations it will be close to 160″ long at completion! Since is is knit from fingering weight yarn, it is pretty lightweight, considering.

When completed, I’ll do my best to get a photo that shows the full length.

Happy holidays to you all, from me and Loki. Thank you for stopping in to visit. We hope you have a lovely holiday, whichever one or ones you choose to celebrate.

Loki has visions of catnip mice dancing in his little head!

Now, back to my FrankenScarf!


  1. The colors in that scarf really work well together! I expected it to be a bit garish, only because of the randomness of the colors & the order in which they’re coming together. I’m delighted to be wrong (again).

  2. Your models are lovely, as is the scarf!

  3. That scarf is gonna be amazing! I do love how it is coming out.
    Merry Christmas to you and Loki =^•^= Hope it is full of beauty, peace and fiber, of course ~

  4. Lovely! Just lovely!!

  5. What a lovey scarf on both of them.

    Loki looks like he’s dizzy from twirling, too. 😉

    Have a wonderful Christmas, Wendy!

    I admire your tenacity, Wendy! It is looking gorgeous, but that’s a given with anything you make. I hope your holidays are happy and that 2017 is a peaceful, joyous and prosperous year for you.
