Holey Cheese Scarf Batman!!!

Had a lovely day today. Went to lunch and shopping with Scott and Michael. No bail money required. And best of all, no one got accidentally cannoned to death. I was VERY well behaved for a change. Afterward, I went to The Ear to knit and bit and show off my newly finished cheese scarf.

When I went on Safari this spring, Ruhama's had this worked up as a stole but I wasn't sure I had the fortitude for something of that sheer size. I should have gotten enough yarn to do one. It was an easy and fun knit even if it did go on forever. I was pretty happy with it when I finished it, but now that it's been blocked and the holes are rounded out, I REALLY like it!

The 'holes' are more like slits until it's blocked.

This is, Liz, the lovely and talented barrista at The Sow. She vamped it up and modeled it for me. She's got it wrapped around her neck twice so you can see it's pretty long. And pretty wide as well. And it's very light and airy-knit on #3 needles. Keep up the great work there Vanna!

I am hereby naming it my 'Wine and Cheese Scarf" since some of the purple colors are the reminiscent of a good Merlot ( and because there may or may not have been a bit of 'whining' involved during the last two repetitions..."Will this ever END"?!)and...well....the cheese part is obvious. It makes a nice addition to my growing knitted food collection (turkey carcass hat, fish hat, carrot for a snowman's nose on a hat). I'm thinking I should make more in authentic cheese yellow for my Packer Backer friends!!!

Too bad I can only wear it to church since it's so holey ! Ba Dump Bump! Thanks you! I'll be here all week. Be sure and tip your waiters!!!

Interesting! It looked a bit wonky on the needles (which had everything to do with IT and nothing to do with YOU, whose skill is admirable). But truly? Now it's blocked and all? That is one BEAUTIMOUS piece of knittin'! Mazel Tov on the completion of a beautiful piece of work, dear Molly Bee!

I love it! What's the name of the pattern? Is it only available at Ruhama's? I Knew I should have gone on that Safari!!!

If you tip your waiter they're going to throw you outta there. Maybe you should save the tipping for the cows. That pattern would make an interesting market bag.
