I'm starting to think that I might have a problem


See that thing on my couch.

That thing that takes up two sections of my three piece sectional couch?

That's my scarf.

The scarf is well over six feet long and hangs down to my knees, shorter if I loop it around my neck. Is it time to stop? I intended to knit until I ran out of yarn. But I still have a sizable ball left.


(Leftover birthday cupcake included for scale. And in the interest of full disclosure the cupcake might have been harmed after the shooting of said picture.)

So do I go for the gold and knit the whole thing, or is it time to stage an intervention in the name of fashion, and possibly safety (I could easily strangle myself on a too long scarf. I could probably strangle myself on a cute scarflet. Maybe I shouldn't be knitting scarves at all).

I keep telling myself I can quit knitting the scarf anytime I want to.

But I'm not sure if I really can.

And just imagine: it'll grow when you block it, too!

I say knit on!

Stop the insanity! LOL

I give you permission to stop knitting the scarf at any time. ;)

It looks so gorgeous, I'd have a hard time stopping. But if I did that in my house, my girls would attack it and use it to tie each other up. lol
