Ever since I started knitting, I’ve been telling Matt that I would make him a scarf. In late September I was pretty certain that we’d hear news soon that we’d be moving to the DC area so I finally started a scarf for him. I chose the scrappy lengthwise scarf pattern by a women in the Orange County knitting group All Things String despite the fact it wasn’t going to be a true scrappy scarf. I used two acrylics I had in stash two make three bold stripes. I’ll likely make another one soon but I’ll be certain to make it much longer. (It’s a bit of a habit of mine to think scarfs need only been five or so feet long. I need to change that mindset to six feet as being the minimum length.)
Matt has only worn the scarf once but I blame that on the warm-ish temperatures and his lack of knowledge as to how to wear a scarf. I have no question that he’ll wear it when the time is right. He’s always really good about using the things I make for him, even my horrible first project (the unintentionally crescent-shaped bookmark).
