- I designed this as a Christmas present for my father-in-law. It seemed to take forever to knit this (hence the name). I think I might tweak the pattern a little if I make it again.
This yarn felt soft at first, but after knitting cables with it for several hours a day my fingertips became very sore. I made hand warmers out of the same yarn and did not have this problem, but maybe that was because the hand warmers were so fast to make that my fingers didn't have time to get sore. Or maybe it was the extra yarn manipulation needed for the cables (or maybe just that particular color??).
Thanks to my MIL for the photos of the finished scarf.
