FO: Mojave

Mojave is one of the first of the projects that I recently pulled out of deep hibernation to finish.  It languished for months after I realized that I needed to get an alternate skein of handspun to finish it - even after I had picked up the skein, the thought of ripping back and re-joining the yarn was unappealing in the face of the addictive shawlette.

But then I started wanting to finish all the things, and this scarf seemed like a logical choice.  It took me something like two days of off-and-on knitting to finish up, which is sort of embarrassing considering the time it took to pick it back up again.  Ah well, the joys of being a non-monogamous knitter!

Now Lumberjack has his very own wide, squishy red scarf.  For uh, next winter.  Okay so maybe the timing isn't great (the weather has been in the eighties!) but let's just call it a win anyhow.
