Finished!

Sookeh Scarf

I pinned out my scarf during the closing ceremony. Success!

It's over eight feet long. It's crazy! I kept knitting and knitting, thinking I'd knit to the end of the yarn, but it was just getting ridiculous. I stopped when it was just over six feet, unblocked. I used about 85g of yarn, and still have about 20g left. I can't imagine how long it would have been if I'd knit the whole skein!

I really like it, though. It's light and airy and perfect for Louisiana.

And I got a lot of medals!

I wavered for a bit on whether I could count it for the Ravelympics and the Knitting Olympics, but in the end I decided that the actual project was for the Ravelympics, but the 2+ weeks of monogamous knitting would be my Knitting Olympics challenge. I was tempted to stray, but didn't, which is amazing, because I was so very close to finishing my Parallel Lines Scarf...

But I waited, and finished Parallel Love a few days ago:

Parallel Love!

I've officially declared Aztec Turquoise an evil color to photograph, so please don't judge the color by that photo, because it's not accurate. But it's the closest I can do without spending far too much time on it! And it's a fabulous scarf, regardless of how weird it looks in photos.
