The 13' scarf...

So, having knit all these scarves lately I had determined that I would do at least one of them diagonally, fairly easy once you get the pattern down, and decided to see just how long I could make it... turns out one ball of the particular yarn I was using gets you 13' of garter stitch with 16 stitches on 10mm needles... I have now decided this is too long so I will be cutting it in half... yes, cutting it in half and getting two 6'ish scarves out of it.
I was kind of nervous when I first thought about it but have done my research and it will be fine, I think, and I should be able to remove enough from the middle and frogg enough to re-bind off both scarves...
So, fingers crossed I should have this done by the weekend, will let you know how it goes :)
