FO Friday: The neverending DNA scarf ended!

Hooray! Finally! And frankly just in time since it finished blocking approximately one hour before we left for our holiday.

Bam! Photos!

Before blocking, I gave up knitting at what I think was 64 inches, so it was a bit short of the goal of six feet. The yarn (DROPS Karisma) was also a bit worrying with its scratchiness, but I’d been assured that would change in the wash.

After a run through the washing machine, not only was the yarn approximately 8 billion times softer but it’d also grown so much that six feet was easily achieved with only the lightest of blocking. Even I could probably wear that against my neck now, and I’m notoriously sensitive to scratchiness around there.

To celebrate the completion of a scarf that managed to take over a year, here’s some more Iceland.

    I love the scarf! I told spouse about the penis museum. He said he’d ask Bjork out on a date and take her there.

    I once knitted my husband a hat as we were driving to the snow, but it’s a much smaller undertaking than your scarf. Iceland is beautiful!
