Breaking news: The Infinite Scarf is finished!!!

 Do you see that? There are no needles in the scarf. Not nowhere.

See? Here's one end. Hold on, this is the cast on.

Here you go, you can now see both ends. See? No needles. I finished it! And I really, literally, finished with less than an inch of yarn to go. It took me three tries to get the stub of yarn through the last stitch to tie it off.

I have no idea how long it is, I have no real intention of blocking it, I've just finished it and strung it on like jewelry.

 Here's a longer shot--yes, the sweater is huge. Sorry.

Lord, but I feel good to have this off the needles. I nearly dropped a stitch while binding off, and I wasn't sure what I'd do. Cry, maybe; put it on a crochet hook and leave it to think about what it had done wrong, definitely, but, thankfully, I hadn't actually dropped a stitch.

Now I can move on with my knitting life. What's next? What should I do next? I wish I could show you all my Ravelry stash page, then you'd be able to tell me what yarn to play with next.

Oh, well. I'll just have to roll in my stash on my own. Uh, I mean search through my stash for a good yarn. Yes, yes, that's what I meant. No hedonistic yarn lolling for me!

The stress of too many wonderful toys. May you all share the problems of abundance!
