Interlocking Balloons is now... over.




Hey, I didn't promise that it would be exciting, did I?

It looks pretty much like the one in the book, though maybe a little shorter. Not that it matters, as necessity is the mother of invention, and I remembered that I know a very short dude: my dad. I went down to a #5 needle because on #6s things were hanging a little loose (not in the good way). I used two balls of Brown Sheep Naturespun Sport, which means my scarf cost about an eighth of what the one in the book does. Yay for being cheap!

The boyfriend does deserve a scarf, though. (This was intended for him, but since he's 6'4", a 5-foot scarf isn't gonna do.) He expressed interest in the Mission Falls wool stripey thing that Mr. "Yes, the tuft of hair IS on the right lip... really!" is modeling. Ack - just what I need. More yarn I need to buy.

    Now for a real comment...

    Great work. I want to make this one too, so it's nice to see one finished (and clearly photographed). I'm short, so I know that shorter scarves are just fine in that they don't hang to your knees. I'm sure your dad will love both the scarf and the effort of the giver.

    What a lovely scarf! This is the one of the ones I liked the most, but I don't think I'm ready quite yet for the challenge of this pattern. Congrats on a lovely scarf... I look forward to seeing the second!
