How to decide....

that a scarf is long enough.  That's always a question I struggle with.  It has nothing to do with the actual length of the scarf, but rather with my boredom.  When I hit 60 inches I am really ready to be done.  Today I was at  65+ inches and ready to stop.  But I thought, I'll take a short break and come back and do a few more inches.  And off to check email I went...moments later I heard that all so familar sound that all cat owners know -- the hair ball coming out sound.  So I zip back to the dining room, where I park my table loom, to find Alice depositing her hair ball on the back beam of the table loom.  Okay, that scarf is done!

No damage to the loom, her deposit was held in place by the warp and I have covered the table with heavy plastic.  And no damage to Alice, who gave me "well, get busy and clean it up" look and then went on her way.  She's only yawning here but I thought it was an appropriate photo of the little devil.

Aren't they cute, those little gifts our kitties leave us. I also have a problem with how long, and it depends on the end of my warp holding out till the end.

Thanks for a great belly laugh.

I'm not quite 4-9 (I used to be not quite 4-10) so I have to extra careful I weave longer than I think is appropriate, and last night, I saw a piece I sold to a tall friend and... it could have been 50cm longer, easily. Sigh...
