Shifting Sands is finished! Woo! (Beware – picture heavy post ahead) I actually got to wear it during our snow storm this weekend. I tried to move my copious quantities of hair out of the way for the photo.

Leaf Edging

 

I picked up stitches along the edging, to begin the scarf. However, the edging had to be grafted onto the finishing end. I used the Kitchener Stitch for that. The above is a close up of the graft.

 

I tried very hard to take the usual photo in the window shot. However, I was taking the photo myself, with a tripod….and my usual trial and error. Lots of error. Out of the hundred or so that I took, these were the best of the lot. At least you can’t see directly up my nose.

While I’m at it, here’s the scarf worn with the Two-Tone hat, which I completed a couple of weeks ago. The hat’s not fancy, but it does the job. It covers my head, and the aforementioned hair, without giving me a headache. It’s perfect for driveway shovelling duties!
