For The Love of Stripes

I have a commission. I actually received this commission a couple of weeks ago and just did not feel motivated to complete it.  Now, the deadline is drawing near, as deadlines have a habit of doing, and I am finding myself sleeplessly creating stripe after stripe.


The thing is, I was given virtual artistic freedom, but handed a photo of a double crochet striped scarf as a starting point for the desired finished product.  I tried double crochet, but I didn’t like the way it was turning out.  Garter stitch was too monotonous for me, and the end result is not reversible.  I wanted something classy and simple, yet interesting to work with.  This scarf is double knit, which is a brand new technique for me (patting myself on the back for initiating a 2013 challenge).  The first few inches were fantastic, and now it is starting to wear me down.

I estimate I am only 25% complete.  So, I apologize in advance if my posts this week are boring.  I will try to spice it up with clever photos and maybe a sneak peak at the other projects on the needles.
