I recently took up knitting to help me un-frazzle a bit. Yoga was boring and caused me to get even more jittery, and I kept breaking all the stress toys, so I thought an activity with a goal might be more my style. 

Don't ask me what happened to scarves 1 and 2... I know you think that modern tv and movies has desensitized you to all that's hideous and monstrous, but believe me, your eyes were not meant to see scarves 1 and 2.

I'm sure scarves 1 & 2 couldn't have been that bad...
I think you're just being knit-picky.

Ah! I can't believe you haven't posted any of your knit-work here--it's worth sharing. :meow:
Okay, okay, so scarves 1 and 2 were a little rough, perhaps THEY don't necessarily need to be posted here...but I'm glad you're showing this one!
This has been a major accomplishment in the scarf department; you did a great job! (Also love the color. Blues are pretty awesome.)

Rough? Monsters that crawled out of the abyss of darkness have shielded their eyes and shuddered at the hideousness of scarves #1 and #2. I don't know what to do with them. Bury them deep underground? But if I do that, then in a century or two some foolish hero will go questing for them, thinking that they are the weapons they need to defeat the dark lord menacing their homeland, but the poor hero will dissolve like a bath salt the minute they got close enough. *shakes head at overconfidence of young hero*

Anyway, thank you! I'm nearly done with my current scarf. I've been at this one for nearly a month. I honestly thought I was faster than that.

Hahaaaaaaa! :lmao:
You always have such a way with words that conjure up vivid imagery. :giggle:
(I probably shouldn't laugh at the overconfident young hero's demise, but it was very funny that such a quest should end so.)
LET THIS BE A LESSON TO ALL YE YOUNG HEROES:
Sometimes the quest is a lie.

You ARE fast! After all, you're not ONLY knitting, but balancing your time among other activities as well. Plus, if I recall rightly, it usually took my mere mere something like a month to complete some of her knitting projects. She had to balance her activity time as well--winter was best for knitting, since there was a lot of sitting inside while it snowed, keeping warm by the heat in a comfy chair.

 *tsk* young heroes. Always have more eagerness than they have wisdom. *shakes withered old head*

Those are some gorgeous stitches!
Are you planning on adding fringe to the scarf, or just leaving it as is?

Thank you! I'm afraid I'm very much a beginner and don't know how to do fancy things like fringes just yet. But I'll look up some tutorials on that for my next scarf. :)

Oh fringes aren't that hard XD
You just need a needle XD
And you do it at the end, so you can do it on this scarf
Seriously, fringes are SUPER easy
I encourage you to give it a try XD

That's so kind of you, thanks! I saw some of your work on your DA page and was really impressed by your stuff. I can't wait till I get good enough to try some of that 3D knitting!
