The Loooong Scarf, Finished at Loooong Last

Yes, it is finally finished, DD#2's loooong scarf. I don't even remember when I started it, it was so long ago!

The pattern is Hugs and Kisses by Dorothy Siemens, and the yarn is JaggerSpun Zephyr laceweight in Mahogany, used doubled on size 6 needles. The tassel maker was a coaster I had sitting nearby. DD#2 will be home tomorrow for spring break; I'll report on how much she likes it.

Now the full moon is nearly upon us. This one will be a super-super sized one, so says NASA. Fourteen percent bigger, being it is a near-perigee moon (perigee = close to the earth), off from perigee by one hour. So be sure to view it Saturday night at sunset. We'll be out and about, on our way to synagogue to hear the Book of Esther read for Purim. Have a happy Purim!

I love when NASA lets us know these things. We always go outside to look because it's just so interesting. If I didn't have the claustrophobia, I would have been an astronaut (ok, and I'm not that fond of math, either)

The scarf turned out great! It's really pretty. I love your tassle maker! ha ha

We noticed the bright moon last night while driving in from Florida. It was very pretty. I'll make sure to look tonight!
