3D flower scarf

It's been a rather long time since my last post.. I have been knitting and knitting along.. This is a REALLY long scarf... so I've been dragging it around with me to J&M's football practice every night... on one of my business trips... I work with a great bunch of folks.. but I'm in CT, and they are all in Rochester, NY.. so I see them maybe 1-2 times/year. One thing I should probably share is... I work in IT (Information Technology - aka GEEK)..Although I'm not a true 'geek'.. I fell into the IT arena... My degree is in 'graphic design'.. which I then attribute to being a creative thinker when troubleshooting problems during some crisis..Typically, most 'GEEKS' hobbies are not with 'natural fibers' but copper fiber (cable that is!!) So when I all of a sudden take out something like this, I got quite a few eyebrows raised in my direction and then get all the questions...

So, to break up the monotony of st st... 82 inches of st st..for me is BOOORRRRIIIINNNNGGGG... I also knit up one of the 16 flowers...

Yesterday, I finally got to the correct length, and have begun the fringe.. It's a bit odd-looking.. like little baby-fingers.. but after felting, I'm sure it'll look kinda cool :)...

Sorry for the blurry pics.. but the yarn is blurry too!.. well.. very lofty... (a nice way of stating.. "FOR THE LOVE of (insert Deity preference here)" - this yarn sheds SOO much... that I'm blind, congested, and no longer have an appetite. Hmmm. new diet! me thinks)

I think it's going to be beautiful and worth all the sneezing when it's done. Um, "baby fingers" - that's odd! Rest assured Nicky Epstein knows exactly what she's doing.

Halairious about all of the raised eyebrows.....the funny thing is whenever i am anywhere and pull out my knitting at least ONE person has to say to me.....Ohhhhhhhh(in this really long annoying tone) do you SEW!!!!
I just shake my head in disbelief! :)

That is going to be beautiful! I can't wait to see it!

Oooooh, I think that would give new meaning to the phrase "yarn diet," right? I always end up with those strands in my eye that I go blind trying to get out... very lovely. But I'm sure your scarf will be. Can't wait to see it!
