Look! A Finished Object!

I actually finished this scarf a week or so ago, but just got around to taking pictures of it today. I'm quite fond of it. It's far from perfect (I note that one can see the hole from an accidental yarn over even in the small picture), but it's mine.

I saw on a TV documentary, years and years ago, a Native American tribe that was known for their woven fabric. Rugs, perhaps? When they made a new rug, they would intentionally make a mistake in the design because they believed that only The Supreme Being/That Guy Upstairs could make something that was "perfect." I like to keep that in mind when I'm knitting.

As always, click on the photos for close-ups.
