DD and her seven foot scarf...
OK so here is a picture of the beginning of the first seven foot scarf. I knit this in Bernat Soft Boucle. It is a very soft squishy soft of scarf. She requested not fancy and very long and thin, so that is what I am knitting.

Looks good! How thin is it? I know my daughter like them thin.. about 4 inches wide.

I don't see how you are possibly going to get all of them done in time w/o killing yourself! Maybe you could finish this one, add an IOU to it and see how she reacts to it first? Knowing her history and all..

Thanks! I CO 27 sts and am using US 9 needles. The scarf is four and a half inches wide, using Bernat Soft Boucle. It is very nice and drapey and sooo soft, BUT this yarn is a pain to knit with because of all the little bumps in it.

I truly wonder if anything I knit for her or her family is good enough. I do my best and that is all that I can do. She refuses to try to understand that these things take time. I have told her if I do not finish, she will get wrapped yarn under the tree. Her response to that was ... well it is not like I am going to use them for a functional purpose Mom, they are for decoration only so it does not matter to me if you get them done in time.

That one hurt! I just totally give up!! I will keep knitting and get as much done as I can.

And life goes on.....

That's a good idea..

I think that I would do the same thing- just knit one for Christmas.. and then wait on the others. That's too much of a time commitment or yarn $ to make 3 seven foot long scarves.. as a last minute request.

I would just say that there was no way that you could do but ONE OF THE SCARVES.. because.. it takes so much time.. and you still had other knitting to work on too. Then, if she absolutely loves it.. puts it on and won't take it off (even inside) .. then, I'd work on another scarf.

I already have all the yarn I will need to make the three scarves. I got it the night she asked for the scarves. This way, I do not need to make an extra trip to start a second, or even a third scarf (I know, I know, I am dreaming!).

I think what she means is they aren't going to be used for warmth, just for looks, but still. Maybe she needs an etiquette book along with a scarf.

Jan took the words right out of my mouth. Bless you for continuing to knit in the face of such a lack of gratitude or tact.
