It's a Scarf!
At times it was quite a puzzle trying to sew the scarf together. Because the pieces ended up being different dimensions, some creativity was involved in getting them to become a cohesive entity. At times, crochet edgings were added
and a few places needed supplemental units to fill in the gaps.
However, it was such a joy doing it all. I was able to work with all the lovely colors and types of yarn people generously donated. And it was delightful to get personal with everyone's work. I don't want to take all the credit for sewing the scarf together. I had help from outstanding volunteers both at Maker Faire and afterwards. (Many thanks!)
The completed scarf is perhaps not beautiful in a conventional sense, but it IS beautiful! In addition to the movement and texture that resulted from the various stitches and sizes, it has a beauty and charm which comes from the spirit of everyone who contributed. The allure of imperfection and the splendor of soul is manifest in this creative endeavor.
Here's a sneak peek of the completed Purl Street Scarf:
Soon, very soon, you'll see it without the Photoshop tomfoolery.
