finished scarf!

Well, I did it. I finished my infinity scarf. Oh, the feeling of accomplishment! I found the pattern on ravelry here. It is actually called the Golden Gate Eternity scarf and I have mistakenly been calling it the infinity scarf. oops.

After I finally finished it (uhm, I started this little thing in February or so) I made my husband take pictures of me in the scarf. I don't know much about photography, but I do know that wearable knitting/crochet projects always look better in use rather than laying flat. 


 All that soft, grey, cable-y goodness. 



And what is an awkward back yard photo shoot without some embarrassing outtakes? just keeping it real.

1. I'm a little teapot. 2. Cute face. 3. What am I doing?

All I know is that if I was on America's Next Top Model (you know the season where she had the short girls?) I would win the whole thing. Not everyone can pull of the teapot pose in front of a wooden fence.


Have you been knitting or crocheting? I would love to see your projects - leave a link in the comments so we can all take a peek.

  1. yaay! you finished the scarf! i looove it! it looks beautiful on you, and perfect timing too... because now you can stay warm for the fall and winter.
    also, i think your photo shoot is awesome. i soo couldn't pull off the teapot pose like that. i would just pull a goofy face and start laughing. hahaha.
    i've always got lots on my needles, but here's a post from last week about the rae scarf by jane richmond that i've been obsessing over. really really. i will start my third one soon. haha.

  2. Thanks! I am so happy to be finished with it. My goal was to have it done for fall and winter wear, so yay!
    I saw your Rae scarf and I love love it. Mine is cast on, I am at about 45 stitches. I love how it is coming out, and I just love the simplicity of it. I will post when I finish it. Can't believe you are starting your third! You must be a lighting fast knitter!

  3. Awesome! It looks great, and I love your photos!

    I'm knitting a fall jacket for Nathan:

    And a pair of socks, photos coming this week. I just found out that the jacket is waaaaay too big for him to wear this year (doh!) and I'm not so motivated anymore now that he can'tn wear it until next year. I'll still try it on him, but I think it will look more like a dress than a jacket!

    I can't wait to cast on a stole for myself... one of these days...

  7. I've always loved the look of knitting, but no luck. Crochet is totally my thing - instant gratification! I'm pretty new to your blog, but thought I'd share my most recent project:
