So...I agreed to do something for a friend that I kind of regret, and yet at the same time I feel incredibly accomplished now that I've finished. Early this year I agreed to knit a friend a scarf for a costume she wanted to do in the summer for the convention we go to. Sadly, I wasn't able to finish in time for the convention so I told her it would be done for Christmas.
Over the Thanksgiving holiday I went to visit family in Alabama, and, since we drive up there every year, I had plenty of time to finish the scarf. At 121 inches long, this monstrosity is something I despise and love all at the same time. I don't look forward to knitting with this color any time soon though.
This is the character that the friend wants to cosplay as:
This is Russia from the series Axis Powers Hetalia.
This is the scarf:
And this is an action shot to show just how long it is on me:
It took me months to finish this thing, it's not perfect but at this point that matters very little to me. It wraps around my neck once and the tails fall to the backs of my knees, that's all that counts. It's finished! Yay!
