F.O. – That black scarf

For those of you who don’t know – this has been a rather epic long project for me. 

It was originally started life with the intention of being a christmas present for my husband 3 1/2 years ago. At that point I had no idea about size of wool in relation to needle size.

“I’ll just knit a scarf and that will be really easy,” I thought to myself.

What I didn’t twig onto for a while (at which point I was too stubbon to restart) was that knitting with chunky wool on 2 3/4 needles is actually a form of self punishment.

Stitch: garter
Needle size: 2 3/4
Length: 75 inches (14 rows of 50 stitches per inch).
Stitches: 52500
