Sky Scarf, April, 2012

Here is the Sky Scarf at the end of April. Right now it's almost three feet long. If I do my math correctly, this scarf will be nearly nine feet long by the end of the year. That will be a LONG, cozy, scarf! I have discovered that I am running short of the light grey and the light blue yarn and that I haven't used any of the dark blue and very little of the dark grey. This has been a fun project, but it does get a little tedious. So far, I've only gotten behind by a few days, but since I've been keeping track of the sky colors in a little notebook I've been able to catch up quickly. I'm probably doing my scarf little bit different than other people. I look at the sky at noon and really do the color based on the color of the sky. For instance, I don't do anything different for rain other than the grey. Some people are adding beads of charms. The fun thing about this project is that the pattern is no more than a guideline; you add in your own creative touches if you want.

Glad to see the update! Do you store it in a basket? If so, you'll be needing a large one! That's going to be some scarf.

Yes! I think it's going to end up being about nine feet long when completed. I have it stored in a square Longarberger basket that was in the lost and found and never claimed. I think it's the medium cake basket from them. I bought a new liner for it. I'm far too cheap to buy one of those baskets for myself, but I love this one for this purpose.
