Monica: My Ravellenics project is growing as I’ve been steadily working on it. I really didn’t think I’d finish it on time especially as I read Dee’s post that the Olympics would be ending today. Luckily for me the closing ceremonies are on Sunday so I have a chance to finish it. Here is how it looks as of this morning.
The other day while I was knitting with my knitting group one of my friends had a puzzled look on her face while looking at the cowl. Then she asked me if I was knitting an infinity scarf and her puzzled look went away. You start with a provisional cast on and knit in the round and then you graft the 2 ends together when you are done. So you end up with a long tube. It is pretty narrow and before she figured out that it was an infinity scarf she was trying to figure out how it could possibly fit over my head. So we started joking about how this would make a great cowl for a giraffe. I couldn’t find a giraffe to model the cowl but I got it over my leg.
and then one of my friends sent me this.
It would be a great cowl for a giraffe!
