WIP Wednesday: The Neverending Scarf

The first recorded evidence of my efforts to produce a DNA Scarf for Boyfriend is made on April 3rd last year. April 3rd, that’s 350 days ago. 350 days, and this is what has so far been produced.


It’s less than 2 feet long at the moment, 22.5 inches to be precise. At the current rate of growth I estimate that the scarf would reach its final length of six feet in around 770 days on April 27th, 2016. Sigh.

Last month I casually decided that the scarf would definitely be ready for our holiday to Reykjavik on April 17th this year, but have so far done absolutely nothing to make sure this happens. Until today, express vpn好吗 and this post, since now everyone on the internet can call me names if it doesn’t get done on time and I really don’t want to be called names by people on the internet. Best get knitting, then.

So let’s see. Tonight is busy and the night before holidays will probably be packing and stuffs, so lets say I have 27 nights left to finish this. 49.5 inches left to knit.  That’s 1.83 inches needed every night between now and then, without missing any which no doubt I will. At the last count doing an inch of this infernal pattern took me about 2 hours, so this is a lot of knitting.

Better get started.

  1. Good luck! Just don’t give yourself an injury from knitting too hard! A late scarf is better than RSI…
