Starlight scarf
17/52 for the group 2019 Weekly Alphabet Challenge

This is an off-topic photo because I couldn't think of anything for "Quest" and the weather was really wet at the end of the week so I didn't feel like going out much.

Instead, here is one of my knitting projects. The yarn is absolutely horrible to knit with. The double strands are easy to split and I have to keep counting the stitches to make sure I haven't gained any. The silky yarn catches on any bit of dry skin on my fingers. It's not a yarn I would have bought for myself, but I found it when we were clearing a cousin's house after her death and I decided to finish the scarf that she started.

The result is very pretty and I'm sure I'll wear it when it's finished but it's such a pain to work with.

It's very pretty; I'm glad you were able to finish it for her.

It will be lovely when I finish it and will be reminder of my cousin. I have to admit we weren't close as adults and I saw her rarely, but it will be a nice memento.

Oh sorry, I'd misunderstood and it's still in progress. Looks great, though, and I'm glad it's personally meaningful too.
