Notes: Never under estimate a small ball of lace yarn unless you want a super long scarf. The yarn was lovely and the pattern was complex, it was a joy to work on it, but I sure am glad it's finally over and I can move on to another sweater.

Happy Friday! Join the party on Andrea's blogTami's blog, and leave me a comment!

Yikes! 14 Feet. Dr. Who in lace ;-) How does it layer/wrap? I bet with all that beautiful drapey lace it is gorgeous folded and wrapped.

I'd like to see a picture of that being modeled. I'm sure it feels like heaven.

That is one loooooong scarf! It's beautiful, and I'm sure it is so much fun to 'wrap and wear'!! :)

Very pretty! That is a lot of lace knitting. I agree with the previous commenters that it would be great to see a shot of it all wrapped up on you.

Carlin said...

Ok that is quite ridiculous. But ridiculous in the awesome almost makes me want to give it a try sense. Rock on!

Kathryn Ray said...

Now that IS a long scarf... right up my alley. ;-)

I agree. I would like to see it modeled. :-)

Melissa Plank said...

Hey, that is some kinda scarf - as Andrea said, Dr. Who in lace! Love it, though.

And we definitely a modeled shot.

Good for you to persevere and finish it. I would have given up 6" in!

Beautiful!!

Vivian said...

Haha, Dr. Who in lace, I love it! I will see about doing some wrap around modeling action. Stay tuned!

Jocelyn said...

Tuesday? I think we can wrap that thing around Panera!

Kathleen said...

I can't believe how huuuuge and completely gorgeous this is, oh wow. I, too, definitely want to see it worn/in action, it must look lovely all draped round (...and round, and round...)

Pumpkin said...

Oh wow! It looks so great! Congrats!

Andria said...

Wow that is long. You have more patience than I do, and have been rewarded with a gorgeous scarf.

fiberdance said...

That is really long-but very pretty-yes to someone modeling it.

AllyB said...

That is one impressive scarf! A beautiful shot of it in the tree. Scritches to that little Rascal dog. LittleDog says hey!

Loco Lindy said...

Wow, I've never seen a tree scarf! (just kidding). It is lovely and all I can say is you must be very, very patient!
