Holiday Scarf

I finished my scarf, this one from Dottie Angel, and have been wearing it non-stop.  I used Quince and Co. Chickadee yarn (dk weight) in Aleutian, Sorbet, Camel, and Egret with an H hook. I held back a few yards of the white color and added it to the end of the pink, just because.
It's the longest scarf I've made yet, measuring 80 inches. Since I'm barely 5'2, I really need to wrap it up or I'll be tripping over it. 

I'm on the second wave of Christmas baking, since everything I made last week has been consumed already!  The boy is home from college.  Must. Eat. Constantly.
That's my great grandmothers flour sifter up there.  It was stored with my cookie cutters, and I pulled it out to try it, but gave up almost immediately.  It must have taken her hours to sift using that little thing.  There are people waiting for cookies here.  I don't have time for dainty sifters.
Look I'm knitting a hat and using circular needles! You will either never see this again, because I failed miserably, or there will be a finished slouch hat sometime after the holiday.  Thanks for the suggestion Meredith :)
 I hope you all have a wonderful holiday!  Thank you for following, commenting, visiting and inspiring me throughout the year.  Merry Christmas!



  1. Your scarf is gorgeous and looks squishy and soft. I'm making and decorating cookies tomorrow! Love your new header. That quilt is so pretty!

  2. Nice scarf. Love your header ; )

  3. Lve the scarf, is it as soft as it looks? Lots of lovely making! Merry Christmas to you and yours xxx

  4. That scarf looks so soft and cosy, I can see why you're wearing it non-stop. Have fun making cookies!! That little snoman in the last photo is such a cutie!!

  5. If I had that scarf I would be wearing it non stop myself. My oldest is home, he just had his pre-dinner meal before actual dinner. Good luck with the hat, I have a feeling it will be your new favorite project.

  6. My oldest isn't home yet to devour the initial baking, but my youngest is doing his best to imitate big bro. Great looking scarf. I always get all melty looking at them, but I never seem to wear them for some reason.:) Happy holidays!

  7. Beautiful scarf!
    Many greetings...

  8. I love a long scarf, and I love that you're knitting! I can't wait to see the finished slouch hat--I know you'll finish it. :)

  9. Beautiful scarf, I love the colours.
