It's official: I'm NUTS

Officially, I seem to have come to this official conclusion many times before but it never seems to stick and needs to be, uhhhh, reconcluded every so often. Or maybe frequently. Which I suppose just reinforces the fact that I'm nuts. lol

The scarf is long enough, says the hubby, and he thinks I'm insane to think otherwise. And I have to say...............the math is working out in his favor as blocked and unpinned it measures out to be 82 inches in length........keeping in mind that *I* am a Shorty McShorterson person of 61 inches in height. So, uh. I guess I've made my peace with it and the scarf is done. HALLELUJAH and all that jazz. Details are on Ravelry if you like. Onward to eye candy pics. :)
There is no doubt I love the color changes in this. I need to get a couple more balls of this to do a pair of socks at some point because the amount of color from the same skein of yarn is ridiculous.

This is really a pretty scarf! Love the colors. I've never knitted a hexagon before. I would think it would be challanging! Oh FYI... we're the same height! LOL!

Just spectacular--and definitely long enough for a 61" person (which I am, too, by the way!!)...

Congratulations, Melanie!

How can you keep track with all the stitches and measurements...I'm sort of math dislexic so all I do is double knit!lol really gorgeous pattern and colours :)

Absolutely gorgeous, and I love the suttle color changes, soft and beautiful! Just wrap it round and round yourself :)

I think I bought this pattern and yarn last year at my LYS! JoJoland yarn, isn't it? Still haven't knit it up. It looks lovely.
