Usually I have at least half a dozen knitting projects going on at once, and I'll rotate between them while I watch television or movies, while being a passenger in a car, or just while hanging out with friends or family. But being in France I couldn't bring my entire stash and giant jar of needles, so I had to figure out how to satiate my love for and need to knit for four months with a single project. I spent hours going through Ravelry, looking for the perfect pattern and I knew I'd come across my holy grail when I found the Purl Bee's Worsted Twist Seed Stitch Scarf. Nine skeins of yarn that create a beautiful, warm, color-blocked scarf that's really more of a giant blanket? Yes please! I knew it would fit my timeline because Danielle made one of her own last semester and it took her about four months.
I can safely say that I am in love with this project, although it does seem like I will finish it when the weather is too warm to wear it out and about, but it's the perfect way to be productive on twenty minute study breaks while watching episodes of Brooklyn 99 or Broad City.
Oh yeah, and for reference, I'm six feet tall. This wrap, at six and a half skeins long, is nearly six feet tall.
