It Felt Like Infinity

I haven’t clicked my needles lately.  But I have good reason.  Really good reason.  Or… reasons.

I got this wise idea last year to knit matching infinity scarves for my three lady friends.  I found the GAP-tastic pattern and immediately fell in love with it.  Simple.  Trendy.  Useful.  So I casted on with light brown yarn and got started.  I finished in about 2 months.  And then I casted on with pink yarn.  I finished it in about 3months.  Finally, I casted on with purple yarn.  Six months later, on Thanksgiving Day, I wove in the ends.   And it will be a very, very, very long time before I even blink at another pattern that has a seed stitch.  But the screaming fingers and 11-month time line was well worth it.  Because they were perfect.

For Abby, a bright and lively color.

For Kelly, my Little Skipper, purple. When I look at her, I see purple.

Infinity Scarf

Squishy.  Warm.  Perfect for a cold winter day.  I really want one for myself… but I will be waiting a long while before I even decide what color I want.  Just the thought of knitting the seed stitch over and over and over again… yeah, it will be a long, long while.
