le scarf

l'écharpe est faite!

if you see me in 3-D very often, you would have maybe observed that i wear a lot of turtlenecks and/or scarves. i don't know why, i'm just a turtleneck and/or scarf kind o' girl. i done made m'own scarf. i call it my prop 8 scarf, because i knitted it while making prop 8 calls. 

and it's DONE!  

this is actually a true personal victory, because i have a way of starting little projects and never finishing them.  somewhere in my closet at my parents' house are crammed evidences of my ADD.  books i got half way through, 3 half finished scarves, and many abandoned drawings, paintings, scrapbooks, etc.  i really disapprove of this habit, and with my size 13 knitting needles and squishy, cream colored yarn, i have witnessed the changing of the tide.

my next project: sticking with detox.  my sister will laugh, but i am going to go off treats (starting tomorrow) without betting on it, without dragging someone into the sadist club with me.  i am going to abstain through the sheer force of my exemplary willpower.

presenting le scarf, my follow-through victory:


now i just have to wait until the weather gets cold enough so i can wear it.
