Needlework Tuesday - Finish of a Year Long Project

 After a year of stitching, and more stitching, my temperature scarves are finished.  I had to take them outside for their photo session.  They are slightly different lengths due to using two sizes of needles, but that won't affect the wearability.   I tried to get the fringe to lay to the right, but the wind kept blowing it all around.

The rows representing October 1, 2013 are in the foreground.  I added black rows to separate each month.  The scarves measure 8 1/2 inches wide and  212 inches long , that is 17 and a half feet, approximately.

Needlework Tuesday is a regular weekly post where I share the progress of my various needlework projects over the past week. I enjoy the encouragement that I receive from my readers and in return visit their blogs and cheer them on with theirs. You are welcome to grab the cute little mouse and create your own Needlework Tuesday post. Leave a comment with a link and I'll be sure to visit with you


In all photos, my scarf, representing temperatures of Waterloo, Ontario are shown on the left and the mystery location is on the right.  This final photo shows temperatures for September.  Now for some fun.  What is the mystery location represented by the scarf on the right?  Correct answer will win, or a random draw if multiple correct answers, if no correct answer, then a random draw to select a winner.

edited to add helpful hints:

The location is in Canada

Marie, at Daisy's Book Journal also knit a temperature scarf, of course, she lives at a different location, so her's looks very different.

Gorgeous scarves!!! Love how the fringe worked out. 17 feet long??? OMG!! That's amazing. Your whole body could stay warm.

I just wanted to point out that my scarf also looks different because I chose different yarn, different colours and slightly different temperature ranges. That's the beauty of this project. We both made temperature scarves, but the variables and choices make it interesting. ;)

Have a great week!

Forgot to say....I also entered. You'll probably guess why I chose that place. If not, ask.

I'm not much of a scarf person even though I have many scarves. I love making them and buying them, but I usually forget to put one on. I've been trying to keep a few right by the door so I can grab one on the way out, but so far it's not working. :(
