There were many things I should have been doing this morning, pattern writing, working on new designs, answering emails, laundry, working out, etc, etc. Fringing a scarf was pretty far down the list. But fringe I did, and I loved every minute of it. I started this scarf back in October. It has been my knit-on-the-go ever since. I've worked on this project in the car (not while driving), on the train, on the subway, at the dentist, in coffee shops, in the recording studio, at various music venues, at the bank drive through window, pretty much anywhere that wasn't home. With the knitting complete last night all that was left was the fringe. Can you blame me for ignoring my responsibilities to tie a few knots?
I love fringe. There is something about the swish, swish when you walk and the way you can toss those ends around as you dance. I especially love the look of knotted fringe. As I knit my first Ulmus Rectangle I decided I had to make one with fringe too. I even added instructions for fringing when I wrote the pattern just in case anyone else felt the same way.
