Behold the Obey scarf. This has to be the most tedious, time-sucking knitting project I have ever talked myself into, yet with an amazing finished product! I started it in May and after working on it for about 2 hours(this is just an average) every single day, I finally finished it towards the end of June. It was my man’s birthday present, and even though I was about 2 weeks late, he loved it just like I had hoped he would(and if he didn’t, well bad things would happen). I found a pattern for it on Knitty.com and knew immediately that I had to make one for my man, and another for my best friend’s birthday as well. By now you are probably thinking “why not make one for you?” and I have asked myself that on many occasions. So instead of committing to another 2 month long binge-knitting bout, I just snagged the one I made for my man(thankfully we are still together) and plan on holding it hostage for a while. The second one I made for my best friend is in the usual red and black, but I made the mistake of using acrylic yarn for hers, which made it even heavier.
This scarf was knit using intarsia, with mirror images on both sides, so it used about 8 balls of yarn, and is extremely thick and awesome!
many many yards of wool yarn, size 5 straight and circular needles(so tiny for such a long scarf), darning needle, alot of time, and as much patience as you can come up with!
damen, for letting me kidnap last year’s birthday present indefinitely
