Red Lace Finished...whew

Red Lace finsihed, just in the nick of time, as it's needed for a party for this evening. I don't like deadlines, sorta takes some of the enjoyment away from working on a project. But, if my work schedule hadn't changed, it wouldn't have been a problem.

I'm happy with the way this turned out and hope the person for whom it's for is happy with it too. Next time I do something along this line, I think I may like to try and work it lengthwise for a little different look, though the idea of casting on that many stitches makes me groan. The longer rows also makes it harder if you get interrupted and have to put it down...still though I think I might like to see how that looks.

Have you ever done a drop stitch scarf lengthwise vs widthwise? If so, how many did you cast on and did you like the result?

Much to do today, so this is a shorter than normal post. Happy wkend all.

  3. Great job , the scarf is so pretty. I find it hard to finish scarves, as they get a bit repetative, and I like my scarves long!
