UFO KAL

I started this on December 25, two days after I had cataract surgery. I had to have my sister write out the pattern for me because I couldn't see to read. She put it on an index card in about 1/2" block letters. Thank you!

My daughter had wanted a scarf and she raided my stash. She found this Knitpicks Bare, fingering weight (440 yards . . . she wanted a hat too but there isn't enough yarn left to make her one). I told her she would have to wind another skein. I have to say that while it doesn't look like too much, this baby sucked up yarn. This pattern is from One Skein Wonders: Razor Shell Lace Scarf. The pattern is relatively easy but I have to say it is surprising how easy it is to lose track of the pattern. Duh.

This was the progress from December 25 to January 26. As of January 1, I had only 1/16th of this thing done and was ready to call it a day. But then I had eye surgery on January 6th and it all became clear . . . LOL!!!
I finished it last night (February 20) and it has been blocked and is hanging in the only warm place in my house (the kitchen). I had it on the floor but my 8 year old kept walking on it.

I have already broken out some other yarn to use this pattern and make it into a shawl for me for my niece's wedding.

Blocking at my house is always a challenge as my 8 year old thinks that jumping over stuff is totally acceptable. My DD wanted a scarf long enough that she could double loop it.
