Last night I finished my Red Scarf Project Scarf. :D Just a bit ago George and I headed out into my backyard to
freak the neighbors out more than normal try to get a good picture for the Gallery. The Norma should find this amusing. I hope. o.0

This was a fun scarf for me to knit up. Both for the fun had knitting it and for the cause.
I started this scarf back in September and have knit on it off and on as it wasn't due until January. I'm a slow scarf knitter so I knew I was likely only going to knit one. Plus I'm doing Dulaan also. Both important.
This scarf has been in four states and has met a celebrity. I figure when I write out the little note card for the giftie I'll write the scarfs life story so far so the giftie person can be amused by it.
Well I hope it's amusing.
Back in September I had an opportunity to meet Bruce Campbell. He's famous for being the worlds greatest B level actor. You may recall him as Ash in the Evil Dead movies. ;^)
We had to wait in a very long line for him to sign his book, Make Love The Bruce Campbell Way. So I did what any sane person would do, I knit. I was knitting on the red scarf. By the time I got up to him he was looking pretty rough. He was nice. Asked me who I was knitting for and I told him, some orphan type person I've never met and that it was for the Red Scarf Project. I asked if he would take a picture with the scarf so I could send it off with the scarf to the person who got it. He said okay and being a comedian was pretending to actually knit on it. *L* Too cute. Sadly my camera was being a pain and the lady who was taking the pictures took a moment longer than sanity will allow to actually take the picture so he kinda has a sour look on his face. In his defense he had been signing books and answering dumb questions for a long time. I can't really blame him. *L* (Plus many of the people who were in line hadn't learned about things like soap and water. Apparently playing WoW 80 hours a week leaves little time for such niceties. o.0)
Here's the picture:
The yarn I used was Patons Classic Merino. It's a little over 6 feet long and 6 inches wide. For a close up of the stitch detail you can look back on this post from September.
Doesn't George look dashing in the red scarf? I may have to make him his own later this winter. ;^)
