It's hard to believe but...........

I actually have a finished object to show you!

This is the "thisisageorgiatechscarfnotapittsburghsteelersscarf". I just sort of made up the pattern as I went along. I did the entire scarf in 2x2 ribbing and did the yellow stripes in probably 8 rows and 12 rows or something like that. I'm not entirely happy with the bind off edge - I really should have done a sewn bind off. But, for something that is going to live in a dorm room and go to GT games to get beer spilled on it I just really wasn't all that worried about it.

Now, if I ever get to see my kid again I can give it to him!

Over the weekend we went to go visit my dad in Atlanta. We hadn't been there in a while so I figured we had better get out there for a visit! Going to my dad's is always a lot of fun. He is getting ready to do a huge renovation on his house. He has a farm with a little farm house on it that is about 100 years old. The house is very cute and nice as he has done a ton of work to it but it is really small - like 5 rooms small! He has been wanting to do an addition practically since he moved there (about 10 years ago) so I'm really glad to see him move forward with finally doing it. They are just about ready to get started. Here is the back of the house as it looks right now.

He'll be adding a breakfast room, a great room, a master bedroom suite, a laundry room, a muck room and a 3 car garage with a full apartment over the top of it. He is also doing renovation inside the existing house to put in a nice kitchen. They are also moving windows and doors and all kinds of crazy stuff. This should be an interesting experiment!

Your Dad's house remodel sounds like a fun adventure.

Of course that's a Georgia Tech scarf. How could it be anything but???? Looks great, too.

Great scarf! My parents both graduated from Oglethorpe, so they would say it's an Oglethorpe scarf. lol
