Adam, Eve, and the world's longest scarf!

Here's my progress on 'Creation':

I'm not sure if you can tell, because my scanner washes colors out horribly, but the sheep are adorable! They're done in a blend and they look all tweedy... ^__^

Now, this may not actually be the world's longest scarf (probably isn't) but it's the longest and coolest! lol - I'm a big fan of the old Doctor Who - haven't seen the new one yet - so when I decided I was going to learn to knit, and the books recommended I start with a scarf - well, how could I resist?
This is Doctor Who's scarf:



Yes, I realize that I may be insane for trying this, but come on! I'll be a geeky-hero! I'll have made my very own Tom-Baker Dr. Who scarf!!! *wibbles happily* I found the pattern(s) here. I added it up, and if I did my math right, it's got 1,040 rows for Season 12's scarf. It's traditionally about 14 feet long.

So here is my very small, very sad looking little scarf so far:

...

Yeah, so a knitting genius I am not. Lol - pretty bad, actually! The right side isn't wavy like that, though, I just didn't smooth it out as good I as should when I was taking the pic. The purple showed up black, but in real life it actually is purple. I really need to buy a new cable for the good camera.

I estimate I'll be done with this scarf in about 87 years. By then, though, maybe my knitting will look a little better.

And possibly go a little faster... O_o

  1. She's knitting - whooo hooo! Your scarf is going to be great! Just hang in there... Knitting is soooo relaxing. Love your stitching projects, too. I really, really need to dust off Mother's Arms (figuratively) and get back to work on it.
