2012 AdventCalendarScarf Day 9


GwenS's cat, Coby.  Taken at her birthday party yesterday.

On to the 2012 Advent Calendar Scarf

Very easy pattern today.  They only "harder" thing was the double YO right on the stitch marker in rows 1, 5, and 9.  One thing is that it seemed to take a long time to finish the section.  Last night when I got back from my 2nd party, the neighborhood block one, I knit through the bead row of the spacer, but, I was just too tired to finish the spacer.  So, this morning, I started with the last 3 rows of the spacer at 7 am, and honestly, only stopping for a small brunch of yogurt and a poached egg at 10:30 am, then a quick snack at 1:00 pm, I knit until about 2:30 pm.  Very tiring work, but the section is very pretty.

Here is what today's pattern looks like:

And here is the full scarf:

It is really getting large.  I knew it would, but, well, the reality is a bit staggering.  I am still trying to decide if I just want to keep it going (the most likely thought), or stop when I think it is long enough, and start a second one.  The way I am going, I think this will be able to wrap around me a few times.  A bit like a Dr. Who Scarf.  Well, I love Dr. Who.

Oh, and I went back to my days 6, 7, and 8 and put in some stitch tutorials, including one of that double YO.
