Self-Portrait with a Finished Object

It's easy to watch football when you have big, chunky knitting to occupy you. I spent the Saturday before last with the family, watching OU play...um...some other team. To be honest, I didn't watch the game so much as I knit-watched the game. Which is to say, I watched my knitting more often than the game, until a family member would scare the shit out of me by randomly shouting, "Go! Go! Go!" at the top of his/her lungs, bringing me back to reality. Anyhow, I finished half of the scarf during the game and completed the rest (including some fringe) last week.

And just to be official about it...

Pattern: No pattern, really. 14 stitches of 1x1 rib 'til you have just enough yarn for fringe.
Yarn: Reynolds Blizzard, 2 balls.
Needles: US size 17 plastic needles. I hate these needles, as I do all of my plastic needles, but come on. I can cope with all the plastic needles in the world if they give me an FO in four hours.
Comments: I don't usually like knitting with big yarn and big needles, but I would happily knit this scarf again. Even Rickus, who has never understood the desire to smoosh one's face into a big bunch of yarn, readily admitted that Reynolds Blizzard is soft. As someone who frequently fondles yarn, let me just tell you, it is SO much more than just soft. It's like buttah.

Comments:
So, the new scarf? The pretty, chunky one that I wanna smoosh my face into? It's for the car, right?
 
Wasn't the "Go! Go! Go!" encouragement for your knitting? That's what I thought was going on.
 
very pretty, and I just love that yarn... so soft!

best way to watch football ever:-)
