In which I braved the 24-degree weather with no coat to bring you this photo…
Since I had so many different strands of yarns, I carried the unused ones up along the edge. Where I remembered to twist them with whatever yarns were being used, it looked OK, but sometimes I forgot to do that, or it just got a bit loose and looked bumpy. So after I finished the scarf, I took a double strand of the main blue yarn and did a row of single crochet along the top edge to make everything tidy.
Total yardage used was probably around 1600-1700 yards of yarn, guesstimated from the finished weight (about 111 grams).
I’m glad I did this project, but I’m even more glad to have it done. Whew!
So what did the sky look like in 2012? Here’s the full scarf, reading from January on the far right to December on the far left. That strip of very light blue about 1/3 of the way from the left was several days of very pale blue skies we had when the valley was full of smoke from wildfires. The thin dark stripe about 1/3 of the way from the right was the solar eclipse.
Happy New Year!
