It's been a long time. A long time since I first started this long and wide scarf wrap. I'm hoping that if I make the description very long I can justify taking 16 months to finish one simple scarf. I could have had a ... (you fill in the blank) in the time it took to finish this scarf.
It's not the yarn. I love the yarn! I purchased this yummy Alpaca Silk blend in a colorway called Aquarium from Ellen's Half Pint Farm at the NYS Sheep and Wool Festival @ Rhinebeck in October of 2008. Almost another year before I started the scarf; I mean wide and long wrap. It is so soft in hand with a sweet supple halo. The color reminds me of the ocean breaking on a sand bar.
It's not that the pattern was hard - its a rectangle! I designed the stitch pattern to be a simple mix of stockinette and seed stitch - couldn't get much easier. I worked on it in the car, at night, in the dark! This was easy knitting.
So why it took so long to finish - I dunno. But I did finish it and I am very happy about that. With all the time it took I am calling the scarf "Procrastination". It is a simple pattern. I promise not to take as long posting the pattern to Ravelry.
