It is finished

The Advent scarf is done!

We had our last class for the scarf tonight. I had everything done but that damn Day 12. I was determined to finish it, no matter what kind of mood I was in. Things didn't start well, seeing as I ran late (forgot my purse at home--*sigh*). But I settled in, got knitting, modified a stitch a bit, and all of a sudden I was done.

This being a dark red yarn, I need to put it up to the light to really show the patterns. So I went all Christmas Geek and threw it on the big tree and the little tree. I tried to get a closeup of Day 12, but my hands weren't steady enough and you don't need the headache of a blurry picture. I still need to block it, which will make some of the lace even more beautiful, so maybe I'll get a shot then.
I'm tempted to do this again in a white yarn I found in my craft room. And our instructor is already talking about a different set of textured patterns for next year. I can't wait.
Coming up: another Work in Progress event. We have 3 months to register and complete as many works in progress as we can. I have a 4-year-old sweater I'd really like to finish.
