118 Ruffle Goodness

Well Ruffles, Ruffles and more Ruffles is done. The final measurement is around 118inches of ruffled goodness. It has been done for awhile, but I was trying to wait for
some real light to get an accurate colour photo.

I was really happy at how the colours turned out with the stripes. I was worriedthe hole time that I would run out of yarn, but at 118 inches I don't thinkI need that extra skein. My husband has decided that it really feels and lookslike a sea cucumber. He keeps grabbing the ends and squeezing. He claim it always makes him hungry. On the flip side a lot of people have commented with the colours it looks like intestines. Either way I as so happy with the way it has turnedout. My first completed project with my knit buddy, MeowGirl.

I have just started on the vintage velvet scarf from the book. Though I have
run into a lot of problems with the yarn I chose and the gauge being to big.
I will post more when I am happy with the scarf.

    Oooh, it turned out great! I'm making Ruffles also, and having straight hair, I love squeezing it like your husband does because it reminds me of all my friends who have luscious curls! :)
