Orange scarf

Finished today but records show I started weaving it 34 weeks ago...

What was I waiting for?  I love it!

I was worried I had used the wrong size heddle on the loom and was debating unweaving the 10 inches I had started and switching heddles.  But I decided to just keep going today.  I went pretty fast once I got started again.

Epic project for the New Year

I have been wanting to knit this for a long time now.  I slowly purchased the pattern, yarn and beads needed over the last year.  I special ordered the 1600 yard skein of yarn.  It has been enjoyable to knit on so far.  I will be taking my time and being careful to avoid mistakes.
