Christmas Shopping & Friday Fill-In #102

Seen through the window at The Gap this morning in my local mall


This morning I knocked out a bit of my Christmas shopping while R. Darling was out testing a new kayak. It’s horribly dark and rainy outside, and I have no idea what could possibly be so interesting about sitting in a little tippy boat out there getting drenched. But that’s fanaticism for ya. And I seem to remember myself, freezing my ass off in my kayak last January on a snowy river anyway, so I guess I don’t have room to talk.

Anyhoo, back to the shopping. On a day like today, it’s good to be in a place where it’s warm and things smell good, even if everyone has to walk about 3 mph slower than you want to walk and obliviously amble along in front of you blocking every possible route around them. But what’s this? Much to my wondering eyes appeared a little yarny vision in the window of The Gap. My thoughts raced back to my stash busting plans for the upcoming year. This would be the ultimate scrap scarf! So, rather surreptitiously, fearing I might be hauled off for taking photos of proprietary fashion at the mall, I snapped a quick photo. What do you think? I loves it. Now, just to figure out how to make it! Oh and what is up with Abercrombie & Fitch anyway? I didn’t even go in there but for some reason I keep catching whiffs of myself and I smell like the prepster teenagers who shop there. Mall osmosis?  Yikes – what’s next?

  1. You have an old Ernie ornament? Aww, cute. That looks like a pretty large gauge scarf so not only would it be good for stash busting, it also might no take eons to knit! Now I am beginning to wonder how it’s constructed… :)

  2. That tweedy waistcoat from Interweave Knits fall 2008 has a diagonal pattern that might work for the scarf. It looks like the pattern must be reversible because the vest has a lapel that exposes the back side of the knitting.

  3. The Gap scarf would surely be a nice scarf to knit although I have no clue how the diagonals would be done! Like your #6 too! Enjoy the holidays!

  4. Ugh, I hate walking by Abercrombie & Fitch! We always hold our mittens over our faces when we walk by because that SMELL gets in your nose pores or something. Yuck! That scarf would look way better home made! :)
