*sigh* Remember how I said that it was almost a sure thing that I would be done with my Knives Chau scarf by the weekend? That was like the cake.
Okay, so I have a good excuse! I was in Tullahoma/Nashville for a night and a day then in Huntsville, Alabama for another day. So knitting took a backseat to hanging out with Ashley, listening to the witty, dulcet tones of Jay Brannan (I side-hugged him!) and 4-wheeling on Mark’s farm.
Read on for photos and more!
Ugh. Look at that second chin waving hello.
I spent the night and next morning hanging out with Ashley in Tullahoma, TN, which is only a few minutes’ drive from Lynchburg, home of the Jack Daniels distillery. Wow, how does anyone live there? That place is like a twisted version of Stars Hollow, but without the colorful cast of characters.
From there it was off to Huntsville for 4-wheeling, which no one seems to believe I would actually willingly do.
Suck on that, bitches! Okay, so even the small jumps made me think I was going to flip over, but I still had fun!
Now you see why the knitting got put to the wayside. But I have been hard at work on it every day since and it’s looking good.
So far it’s just slightly taller than me, putting it just over 6’. But remember how I was bitching about the sides curling? Well guess what…
They’re supposed to! How’s that for a happy accident? The only real difference between mine and the real one is the length of the color segments. But here’s another happy accident: I joined Ravelry.com today and found a girl who made the same scarf, but she thought it would be a cute idea if there were 17 segments in all, equivalent to Knives’s age, and also that the scarf in the movie is roughly 10 feet long. Well, to make a 17 segmented, 10’ scarf, each segment would have to be 7 inches. Guess how long my segments are.
Yeah, bitches. 7-F’in-inches.
So, instead of leaving off with 11 segments, I’m going the full Chau and doing 17. I would like to thank MissLucy for figuring all that out so that I might steal her awesome idea and knowledge. You rock!
*whew* I think that is quite enough for one evening, so until next time, see you cowboys.
