Finished: One Colt's Scarf

I am not sure why I was dragging my heels, but I did finally put the fringes onto this scarf to be able to add it to the finished project pile.



The Details:
Pattern: House Scarves, by Lauren Kent (From "Charmed Knits" book.)
Yarn: Plymouth Yarn Galway Worsted - 2 skeins of blue and 2 skeins of white
Needles: Size 8 (16" length. This pattern is knit in the round to produce a thick and warm product... and easy knitting!)
Colorway: Bright Blue & White
Started: March 19, 2010 - My mindless knitting while supervising a competition
Finished: June 29, 2010
As mentioned previously, this scarf is part of a city-wide service project. When Indianapolis hosts the Super Bowl in 2012, it wants to reward its thousands of volunteers with hand-knit scarves. I might volunteer myself to get this scarf back! Or I could just knit another.

In other summer goal news, the viola d'amore congress went very well! All the practicing definitely paid off. The garden is less full of veggies than I anticipated, but that is OK for the first summer of living here. It is also drowning from the vast amounts of rain that has been pouring down for the last few weeks. I also got a couple bike rides in last weekend, but most unfortunately put my right knee out of commission - OW! So while my goals are hobbling along, I am enjoying the summer none the less!

Happy Knitting!
