What a mess!

What could all this be?? Sure doesn't look like much other than a disaster.

But wait. Is this making any more sense?

No, probably not.

Eventually, it's going to be something like this except edited down to a scarf instead of a shawl.

I'm still going back and forth as to whether or not to embroider the final thing as was done in the photo above. We'll see. These yarns will be lined up side by side on top of embroidery stabilizer and then another layer of embroidery stabilizer on top of that. Then I'll stitch horizontal and vertical lines across the scarf in order to hold it all together. The stabilizer will be washed out leaving me with a scarf that was not knitted. At least, that is the plan right now, but we will see what actually happens. It will be kind of labor intensive.

Jen R. Thanks for stopping by. Unfortunately, it was not my idea.

OMG....I want to see it when you are done. I do have lots of stray yarns....not as pretty as those!
