Goodness I just looked through my 2008 Completed Projects Thingy and I really didn't finish much last year. I did start an awful lot of new things. Many have been frogged, live and learn and more are just waiting to be finished. A few things were completed but never made it to the blog due to lack of photo taking. Opps.
Here is the scarf I finished last November as modeled by the ever lovely George.
Pattern : Drop Stitch Scarf by Christine Vogel
Made for : ME!
Size : 8 feet long & 4 inches wide (Crazy Ass Long!)

The color reminded me of late summer/early autumn when the mums are all out and it’s time to go play in a maize maze and pick your pumpkins. :D
The yarn tends to fuzz up FAST and lose its wonderful shine and luster, still pretty but a bit of a shame. :/
If I made this pattern again I would make it wider and shorter.
Here's a better view of the gorgeous colors.
Now for a bit of random... I love William Shatner.
I was just listening to a William Shatner & Ben Folds song a bit ago. The song is called "In Love".
In general it's a damn funny song, but this bit caught me just right.
"I don't feel enough of anything
to harbor the kind of disdain
that you'll maintain
you painted me into what you
wanted to see,
and that's fine,
but you will never know me"
The bit about the being sworn to secrecy by the international brotherhood of lying fickle males tickles me pink also. *L*
If you haven't heard it yet give it a listen here. ;)
P.S. Every time I come to TypePad everything is freaking different. o.0
