Dragon Scarf -- FO
(Click the pictures to view them larger sized)
As a warm-up for actual knitting, I had to post this "Lio" comic by Mark Tatulli:
I do have a few finished objects, but don't have many pictures of them. This is one of my favorites, though: the Morehouse Farm dragon scarf. This picture was taken at work:
This was a fun pattern to knit. Because the pattern is only sold as part of a kit, I did break down and order one. I love the technique for the spines down the back--very innovative. I'm not sold on this particular yarn, though It seems like it would felt wonderfully. I really want to find a bunch of cheap green yarn so I can enlarge this pattern to make a costume for Payton.
As an example of how silly high school students can be (or is it me that's silly and they're the ones who are serious?), I wore this scarf all day one day when we were solidly booked with appointments. Only one student commented. Here I have my hair dyed blue and I'm wearing a dragon scarf, and no one says anything. Of course, all of my adult friends/colleagues/neighbors, and even a few strangers, have comented. :-)
