I'm a bit amazed- I actually finished the scarf! It is warming my neck as I type this. I do like the colours and the feel of it. It is a bit on the scraggly side, a few dangling bits of yarn. I will have to see how it wears and washes. I don't think it will totally come apart.
Also, I have learned that it is really hard to take a picture of yourself; hence the scarf is on my little set of drawers in the photo, rather than on me.
I haven't blogged as much as I wanted to. I meant to write about the death of Oliver Postgate, whose work I've really enjoyed. (The clanger pattern was a pre-buscraft project. I spent a lot of time making a clanger while riding on the train to work. I'm not sure how I would feel about sitting on the bus using foot long metal spikes, um, I mean knitting needles.) But Mr Postgate's work deserves more than a brief note from me, and to be honest I'd prefer to watch the Clangers and Bag Puss rather than to write about them. So simply, a farewell and thanks, Mr Postgate, I do hope to always be inspired by your work.
And Finally, I've been trying to think if I want to have a paper-based journal, like I used to keep, for tracking what I'm up to in 2009, or if I should just use this blog. No conclusion reached, so I'm going to start the year by doing both, and seeing how well both work. (I was happy to be able to check when I started the scarf, so am please with blogging at the moment.)
