Finished Object Friday

… on a Saturday πŸ˜› But better a day late than never, I guess πŸ™‚

There is this thing on Instagram, a tag called Finished in February (#finishedinfebruary), which is about finishing as many projects as possible, not starting any new ones, and not buying any more yarn. (Well, I failed already because I started something new last week… but don’t tell anyone!)

Anyway, I thought I should jump on this because I have so many wips and I really want to finish some of them soon. So I started bringing projects to my geology lectures, and I’ve actually managed to finish two scarves so far πŸ™‚

This is one that I started recently and actually also the one I finished first. I found two balls of fancy yarn in my stash while looking for something else, and I decided to just make a simple tunisian crochet scarf with wavy ends, using the stitch variation I learned from doing the Dragon Tail. I think it turned out all right. Maybe a little bit short, but I used all the yarn I had (with only five inches to spare) and the brand is discontinued now anyway. It curled a lot, so I had to block it, and using a wet towel and an iron is the only way I know, but it might not have been the best method for an acrylic scarf… Oops πŸ˜›

And here’s the Dragon Tail finished as well πŸ™‚ Also shorter than I’d liked, but I ran out of yarn, so I’ll just have to figure something out. May have to use a pin to close it or something. The next time I make one of these (yes, there will probably be more, the pattern is fantastic – quite easy, but looks very impressive), I will either use thinner yarn or a thicker hook, or both. This ended up being quite dense and stiff, so I doubt it will drape much… Oh well, lesson learned πŸ™‚
