FO - Exchequered

So, I started Knitty's Exchequered right when it came out... early in 2006. I had no idea that double knitting was going to be such an incredibly tedious endeavor. Two years later, I've finally cast off one of my perpetual UFOs. Uh, I might have overdid it a bit, because this scarf is seven feet long.





Seven. freaking. feet. of double knitting. I feel like I've just run a marathon or something. Very much worth it, though. This thing is double-thick, warm, and just... yeah, I haven't really taken it off yet. I wish I'd have pulled it out to finish sooner, because it languished as a UFO for far too long. I guess one of my New Year's resolutions should be to finish or frog all the things that have been sitting that way for far too long...

That's one might impressive scarf! I haven't had the courage to do colorwork, myself. I'm working on lace this year as my New Year's Knitting Resolution.

It's looking gorgeous! And you deserve all credit for taking on such an immense project. This is one of my "if I were a better knitter" patterns.

Quite impressive :D

I haven't yet attempted any colorwork. I think double knitting is what I'd like to start with.

But yeah, that's really a huge undertaking! I love the results!
