It's finished object Friday.
OK, so it's Saturday. I didn't have time to write up a post yesterday.
So I finished the scarf that was to be sold. After you break it down, I got about $1.50 per hour for knitting it. Still, it's my first sold object. I'm not so sure I want to sell my stuff. It might take me 40 or 60 hours to knit something, and I don't know who would pay the prices that would support a knitter. Even if one charged minimum wage, a 60 hour knitting job would come to over $450, and I don't know who is going to pay that kind of money for a scarf or sweater, even it is hand knit from fabulous fibres (and don't let's mention that the client will also be buying the yarn, which, depending on the garment, will add considerable expense).
Be that as it may, here is David's scarf. And David, modeling it. Of course, I finished it in the middle of a summer heat wave, so he won't be needing it any time soon.
The scarf is made of Noro Kogarashi, 51% silk, 49% wool. I used a 1x1 rib pattern, to get that stockinette look without the curse of the curl, and used a selvedge edge. It took two skeins to make this scarf.
