My instagram has been all about this scarf lately. Though the pattern was written with Madelinetosh Unicorn Tails in mind, I found that I could use several of the tails I have in combination with leftovers in my stash from Laylow, Sothern, Holla Back Tank, Cedar Glen Mitts, and a skein of alpaca I've never used. It's not a true rainbow color combo, but I like that if I isolate any three colors together, anywhere in the scarf, they look good next to each other.
I kind of like the randomness of it. Plus, I'm using my unicorn tails for something special. Lets face it, I'm probably not going to be buying more madelinetosh for a while and not in the 20 colors I would need to follow the pattern exactly.
I finished the entire Gilmore Girls series too. That's a lot of mindless knitting accompaniment. Favorite moments include the episode "Friday Night is Alright for Fighting" when the Gilmore family spends an exhausting evening airing their grievances, laughing, drinking, and repeating the process over and over. Then there was the fact that Sebastion Bach had a recurring role in the show as Gil, and the band's initial reaction to him as a rock n roll geezer cracked me up. Don't forget Kirk's artsy movie and modern dance performance.
But there were things I felt were missing by the series finale and I was a little disappointed it was wrapped up the way it was. But I'm still upset about the last couple of seasons of all of my favorite shows, except the ones that were cancelled after one season, so it's not surprising. What did take me off guard was my husband's reaction to the finale. Like two nights later he said, "Something's bothering me. " and though I expected to hear about some real life drama, no it was the fact that he didn't like what the writers did with Rory in the finale. That amused me.
