Trillian!

Tonight at Knit Night, I had a friend take a few pictures of me wearing my finished Trillian scarf while there was still daylight. Here are my faves.


I’m so glad it’s done! I love how it looks and feels, but gosh, it was probably my longest project ever- I think I started in November of 2015, but it was forgotten about, then purposely eschewed in favor of projects that didn’t bother my hands.  Anyway, it’s done, and I’ll wear it often and will also make an effort to check my hair before photo shoots (rogue curl strikes again!!). 

The end is in sight!

My Trillian scarf has been going pretty well. The other day I weighed the ball of yarn, and it was around 42 grams. Now, with  this pattern, you’re supposed to knit until you have 7 grams left. Well, after getting down to 40-some grams, I’ve been inspired to finish this thing up! I’ve been working a few rows a day, and weighing  it every so often, and suddenly I’m down to 22 grams! Only 15 to go – each row is a bit over a gram at the moment, with each successive row using up a bit more yarn than the previous rows, so fewer than 20 rows to go, I estimate. Yay!!!

Better than nothing

My Trillian scarf/shawlette has not gotten much attention since my carpal tunnel started acting up back in February. I find that the smaller needles irritate my wrist and hand, so I only do a few rows a day, at most. Today I managed two rows. So it’s growing very slowly, but two rows are better than none, right? 

  
I’m supposed to knit until I have about 7% of the skein left, if memory serves me.  It’s about time to weigh it!
