It's Friday, and here's my progress report for the unfinished projects list I've been working on this week for the 2011 UFO Bust. If you want to see others' progress on their UFOs, click over to Blackberry Creek.
Yes, I've been knitting this week (lots!) on the Irish Hiking Scarf. I'm sure you've seen the button on my sidebar for awhile now, and I previously posted about this scarf here.
As of today the scarf now measures 45 knitted inches with only 10 more inches to go! Maybe I can finish it this weekend and finally give it to Sarah!
The story behind this scarf: Back in 2008 I had knitted at least 36" on this scarf before gift wrapping it for Sarah for Christmas that year. Included was a note telling her that Mom "didn't quite finish in time, but I would get right to it."
Fast forward to January 2011: I think this should be the first UFO that I tackle on my list. Sarah has waited very patiently for her scarf that will match both her knitted hat Aunt Bet made for her and a green sweater the exact same color.
Hold on, Sarah! I won't give up this time!
