Is it finished

The Irish Hiking Scarf is finished but not quite ready for its photo shoot. Tomorrow I'll be spritzing and steam blocking to correct some gauge issues. I ended up using the equivalent of two skeins of Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Worsted and knitting the scarf on Size 8 Addi Turbos. Until I shot the photo (above), I didn't realize that Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride was "permanently mothproofed" -- did you?

This scarf was probably one of my favorite knitting projects to date; the bonus was that knitting all those cables helped me brainstorm some things that I've been trying to work through.

I loved your web site and what a pretty color you are knitting!

I commented on flickr, but I just wanted to say that I am so happy for you that this is coming to completion. The cables are wonderful and I think it is totally cool!

I wonder what was done to moth proof it :)
Very interesting previous post. Knitting makes me think about my values, my priorities in life, how I should be spending my time, my resources.

Dont you love when the lights come on?

It looks great. Im glad you got it done.

This is Sallie from the Friday morning bunch at Twisted Yarns.

Very nice scarf. I love the cables. I did notice that Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride was permanently mothproofed. So are some of their other yarns.

lovely scarf, Janet. :) I'll be casting one on tonight at my knitting group using purple LPW. Thanks for the inspiration. :)

Janet it's beautiful!! I too realize after knitting on certain projects, that I have solved some of "my worlds" problems. Your blog is great!!

The bit I can see looks great! I've always wondered what exactly is done to permanently mothproof any yarn...

i'm unsure if i think the mothproofing is a good thing or uber-creepy. what nasty chemical could they have possibly used? or maybe it's just good ol' lavendar and eucalyptus. here's to hoping, as i've got another project on the needles using lpw.
