Red Scarf No More and TA DAH!!

FO Post (link in sidebar)
Half and Half, Red Scarf no MoregThis knitted scarf started out to be a red scarf for The Red Scarf Project; but I ran out of yarn. Had this yarn for ages and ages and knew it was pointless to even try and match it. I was burned out frogging things so decided not to frog it back and do some striping....everyone's first way to solve not enough yarn problem. I also liked how wide it was (could have frogged it and made it thinner). It's 7.5 inches wide, made of washable wool (Plymouth's Encore). Lovely yarn to work with. So.......I made it half and half. Knitted with red until I ran out joined the purple and matched the length....It's done, aside from tucking in the ending purple tail. It's no longer suitable for The Red Scarf Project, so....I'm trying to decide whether to add to the donations for Bridge and Beyond, or gift it to someone.

And my big TA DAH, I finished the wedding ghan. You might have seen it listed on Sunday's YOP post, with a picture before it was laundered, final tails tucked, and blocked. Here it is in all it's glory. If you saw it before, sorry if these feel like a duplicate...I'm just truly please it's done, and pleased with it...so wanted to share. It's Plymouth Encore Chunky washable wool.......lol, seem to have a thing going here with Plymouth Encore Washable Wool.
