Oh my god, I finally finished the Skyrim scarf 0-0. It is very long. I’ll take some pictures and model it some tomorrow, I’m so tired right now. I pretty much finished a whole pattern repeat today and my wrists hurt, but a satisfied pain of a job done. I think I want to block it, but I’m not sure how I can do it here. Maybe I can borrow my suite mate’s iron and steam block it? I’ve never blocked before and I don’t have any pins or anything. I’ll figure it out later I guess, but the hard labor is done! Yay! Woo! *collapses in exhaustion*

Well as of now I’ve got two projects going, both of them knitting. I started a Skyrim dragon double knitted scarf back when I was in Japan, based on this chart found on Ravelry. I’m using Noro’s Retro in black and a dark indigo color, using 4 balls of the stuff. It’s going to be a wedding gift for a friend I made over in Japan when she gets married… in a year or so. It may take me that long to finish. But! I got some major progress done on it this past summer, the last time I measured it it came to 40 inches long!
The other project is a personal one, another dragon themed Skyrim scarf, but this one involves shadow (illusion) knitting. I’m using this chart, which is based off of this chart. I’m using Knitpick’s Palette Yarns in Black and Mist. I started this project as a sort of break from the double knitted scarf, I just needed something that knits up a bit quicker before I can go in for the homestretch on the double knitting one, you know? Plus, I need a scarf for winter. Seriously, I don’t have one right now.
Some modeling yeah. #knit #knitting #skyrim #shadowknitting (Taken with Instagram)
3rd pattern repeat done! I think I’ll consider this the half way mark. #knit #knitting #dragon #skyrim #shadowknitting (Taken with Instagram)
