Aaarrrrggghhhh-osy!

It's finally done! My Argosy scarf.

I was really hoping it would be my final knit of 2006. Yesterday, I cast off and was ready to block, when I noticed a gaping error near the middle of the scarf. Aaarrrrggghhhh! It was one of those mistakes that I just couldn't live with. It would always be staring back, mocking me. So, New Year's Eve afternoon was spent frogging and re-knitting. I missed my self-imposed deadline, finishing it up today. Ah, well. Now it becomes my first knit of 2007.

Happy New Year!

Oh no! And it had to be towards the middle. I said it once, but I'll say it again- so lovely!

I saw you live in Vancouver. I love that city, it's so beautiful! Sadly I've only been there once. I was happy to see others up as late as I am (it's now 1:44am) but now that I know you live on the other coast... I guess it's not so late for you. :)

It's beautiful-- well worth the effort of reknitting. the pattern hadn't really appealed to me before, but seeing yours, I might give it a try (but only if I have the yarn in stash).

BTW thanks for your kind words on my blog. Happy New Year!

Oh - I'm so sorry to hear that you had to frog parts of your scarf - but despite all the hassles you've had with it, it turned out so very beautiful! Great work!
