The timing is purely concidental! I started it over the Summer and finished it two weeks ago and my post last night reminded me to finally make the tassels. Please don't judge me.
I have this problem with long projects where I bundle them up as they grow, so I don't realise how long they're getting. If I don't bother to check, or have already decided I'm going to follow the pattern to the letter, this can have silly consequences.
It's not very clear, but I'm standing on a chair. Doubled over, the scarf reaches from the ceiling to the floor. I'm 5'6".
I could wrap it around a few times and use it as a dress.
It is very snuggly.
And I like the tassels.
The patterns is here; I can't remember what yarns I used, as I went with what was roughly right and on sale, and the wrappers are either in the recycling bin or my other knitting bag at home. I didn't get the colours quite right, but the only one that's annoying me is the cream - it should have been a lot closer to beige, but I was going from memory.
So now I have a giant scarf and a snuggly hat. BRING IT ON, Winter.
Related: I'm considering dressing up as the Doctor for Halloween, though this is depending on charity shops doing me well. I probably have more of the build, and, currently, hair, to do a better job of the Matt Smith incarnation, but my first preference would be David Tennant. Fangirlish preferences aside, I'm more likely to wear the clothes for that costume again. A thought exercise this has sparked is that if I were to dress up as, say, Amy, the differences between me and a very hot girl would be readily apparent. I'm not sure if a girl who isn't hot dressing up as a man who is very hot draws similar comparisons.
Or I might be lazy and dress up as some sort of creepy doll. I could probably put a costume together from clothes I already own.
