I know my KAL progress is usually out there on Tuesdays but I couldn't resist sharing the photos of my finished HiP. Mr. Sittin' was sweet enough to model it for me (evidence that it turned out nice. I may have to make a second one, I saw that "is this for me?" gleam in his eye when he picked it up...)
I followed Alison's instructions for HiP but decided that instead of weaving in all those ends I'd sew a piece of fabric onto the back. Also because the yarn I used is a bit scratchy. (Did anyone else notice that about the Elan Peruvian wool?) I wanted Harry Potter fabric but the only place I could find it was on EBay for $12/yard. I don't consider myself "cheap" per say, but that's a bit much for some cotton fabric that is getting sew on the back of something else. So, we went with a starry night motif. I busted out the sewing machine and half an hour later I had a lovely scarf.
