Stitch by stitch...bead by bead...

Slowly, I'm gaining on the Accordion Scarf.  The pattern calls for 25 repeats before knitting the bottom edge.  I'm on the 17th repeat at the moment.  The rows where I add beads go more slowly, but bead by bead, I'm getting closer to the finish line.  When this scarf is blocked, it's supposed to measure 60 inches.  If I have plenty of yarn, and it looks like it might fall short of 60", I may add another repeat or two.  We'll see. 

I've also got the blue cotton shawl sweater going...but it's really slow going.  I'm not spending quite as much time on it.  Once again...stitch by stitch...I'll eventually get the back section completed.


  1. Stitch by stitch can be our new mantra. LOL The scarf is looking lovely!

  2. On large projects, the only way to finish is to focus on a stitch, a row, or a repeat at a time. Any more than that can be too daunting, causing the project to get stalled.

    Keep knitting, the scarf is looking great!

  3. What a beautiful scarf. It will look great on you. You always pick challenging projects.
