Multidirectional Scarf

I'm so behind in blogland. I'm way behind in my blog reading, and it's been a month since I last posted. Oh well.. life gets in the way sometimes!

There has been some knitting happening even though it's not being reflected on the blog!

I finished up my multidirectional scarf and I've been wearing the fire out of it with all the snow and ice we've been getting lately. It "warmed up" to 40 the other day but rained all day and turned into sleet at night, so I refuse to count that as good weather.

Overall, I really like the scarf. I'm not a big fan of the sudden light purple streaks in the middle of the dark, dark purple spots, but I like the scarf in the end. Ironically, the stark contrast is what my friend Amy likes the best.

Overall Specs:
Pattern: Multidirectional Scarf, Free
Yarn: Austerman Murano, One skein - About $23
Needles: Size 9
Time: About three evenings of TV knitting

P.S. I have yet to break my Lent promise of no yarn buying! I even held up through a HUGE sale at Threadbear.

That scarf is AWESOME!

I'm sure it will take some time for you to catch up in blogland, but we'll all be here!

Nice work --- I've tried a multidirectional several times and never been happy with it.

I've missed you!

LOVE the scarf!

And nice work on the Lenten promise. You are doing well! I don't think I could have resisted a sale. :)
