About five hours in, and I'm not even close to being halfway done with this afghan!! Twelve hours my ass. However, I am using a hook two sizes smaller than the recommendation. Even though my last post was about hating gauge, I decided to try it for this afghan, especially since my hook is so much smaller. In conclusion, gauge doesn't really matter for an afghan like this one, at least not to me, because the number of stitches isn't reliant on pattern, or whatever. The pattern called for 101 stitches, and I used 160.
Like I said, I'm not even halfway into this scarf, more like one fourth of the way:
I'm also thinking about finding a mannequin to photograph my scarves on, I think it would give a better idea of how they look. Now I just need to find a mannequin.
