Last weekend while Anemone was here, I finished the seams for her Shrowl and we got pictures. This was actually a very enjoyable knit. As I've mentioned before, I normally am not especially fond of knitting anything scarf-like, but the garter ribbing in this had a really nice rhythm and was a good side project-barely needed any attention, but didn't make me fall asleep.
The yarn was a find at one of the consignment stores in town-a lot of times there's mostly junk stuff, but I've gotten a couple of nice yarns there, and it's always nice to find something for $2 or less a ball. The color was totally Anemone, and after some going back and forth, she asked for "something convertible."
I knit this pretty much exactly as written. I was a little short of the recommended yardage, so I just knit until I had 5-7 yards left, to make sure I had enough for the seams and a little bit for my scrap stash. I was a bit nervous about this fitting on the futon to block, but it worked out perfectly.
