Day 143 and Kevin
This scarf was the result of the very distinct and often unusual bond between designer and laborer. In this case Kevin was the unwitting laborer. I hauled him to the yarn store and said, "CHOOSE!!" I hauled him back home and laid out stitch dictionaries and said, "CHOOSE!!" Whatever he choose, I crafted. No questions were asked. No complaints given.
He definitely picked out a yarn I would never have chosen on my own and the stitch pattern was also one I would have passed by. At first I found it to be an excruciating project, but it's kind of grown on me. I'm glad I did it. I had a lot of good practice with puff stitches and the end result really did end up quite handsome.
