Diagonal Buckeye Scarf Done

Diagonal Buckeye Scarf Done! This scarf was started as a Christmas gift, didn't get it finished. Project layed aside, without notations about where I was in the pattern. Argh. Thank you Chris, fellow blogger for coming to my rescue. After the project being dormant and or my work in progress list for far too long.........I used Chris's directions and was able to pick up where I left off. Finished it last night. I did have some issues with adding a couple of extra stitches here and then, then lost a few...though it's not real noticeable...even to me and I know it's there. I like the diagonal slant, I need a new scarf..........maybe I'll keep this one? Would be good to wear to The Ohio State Football Games, maybe.........I'll donate it, maybe...........I'll hold onto it for awhile and decide. Juries out. I have a scarf barely started for myself with luscious mohair...hum....

Anyway, successfully got this project moved from wip list to the FO list. Since last Sunday's post for YOP post this is the only completed project; though 2 more afghans for Bridge and Beyond are in the works. Since the start of our list (see tab on top of the blog for updated and ongoing list), these 2 afghans, Day at the Beach and Blue Jazz make ghans #13 and #14. Stay tuned, perhaps I'll unveil them as there's a bit more to see.

I'm really needed to pull out Candy Corn Ghan as the longest running wip I've ever had....just not motivated.

  2. That scarf is lovely, and well done on picking it up again and sorting the problem!

    Enjoy your week won't you, I think the US gets the clock change soon so lots more lovely daylight. We have to wait another fortnight before ours change. Candy Corn will tell you when it's ready to be finished.

  4. Great scarf, well done for persevering when it was hard to restart.

    Isn't it funny when some projects become so hard to pick-up, I'm sure as Kate said, it will happen when it happens!

    Have a good week!

  8. What a lovely and effective color combination on your scarf. I need a scarf to wrap up in today here in the suburbs of Seattle. Lots of rain/snow showers and hint of Spring we had a few weeks ago has gone back into hiding. I loathe this time change though, and know the effects of it will bother me at work for the next week. Honestly, we work our way to longer days with the natural progression of the sun and our seasons--I just don't see the need for this one hour difference! Bottom line--Don't mess with my sleep cycles! :)
    Have a great week-

  13. Your scarf looks good to me. I can't say that I see much difference between the edge of your and mine. The only thing I may have done differently is that I'm making my stitch by knitting b&f instead of f&b, don't know if that makes a difference.
