Impossible Model

Here it is-finished with the ends sewn in.  I haven't blocked it yet but it is definitely wearable the way it is.

My model was not the best to deal with but some days there are things beyond your control.

I love the finished scarf!! Leaves make me very happy and there are more leaves on my scarf than the pattern asked for.  I just knit until out of yarn. A scarf really can't be too long.

The yarn is very soft and feels great around my neck.

Pattern: Leaf Scarf from Spud & Chloe
Yarn: 2 skeins of Twinkle Soft Chunky in colour 23 Haze
Needles: 12mm

Notice the fence?  While Beth and I were away my dad came and repaired it.

Today is my parent's anniversary.  47 years.  WOW.  I'm not sure who has put up with more in that time.  We are taking them out for dinner after work. There is no present yet.  We had no clue what to buy them.  If they want something they go out and buy it.  And after 47 years they have collected a lot of stuff.

Do you have lots of family photos? I am going to make a slide show for my parent's 40th anniversary of pictures of them through the years and then when they had their kids and now grandkids. The song I really want to use is "Another Year Has Gone By" by Celine Dion. The chorus says " Another year has gone by, and I'm still the one by your side, after everything that's gone by, There's still no one saying goodbye, Though another year has gone by." Good luck with your present for them!!!

The leaf scarf motif is very, very close to the leaf border of the Cedar Leaf Shawlette by Alana of Never Not Knitting. I just finished it tonight.
