I'm also nearly done with this scarf which has been on my needles since may 2011! I've only got a brussel sprout size ball of the yarn left then it's finito! I't's my no brainer project as after 14 months of w.i.p I have the repetitions imprinted on my brain.
As I subscribed to Taproot a little late, I've only just received the first two issues. I haven't yet dipped into n°2, as am trying to make 'Soil' last as long as I can, it's great stuff!! Also reading Animal, Vegetable, Mineral and am inspired to eat more locally and seasonally as Barbara Kingslover and family do. This means coming to grips with the reality of no more maple syrup, peanut butter, seafood or avocados!!! or moving! Uprooting us all for four 'luxury' food items is obviously not an option; reading 'Soil' has reminded me why our family, and I hope further generations of it, will stay implanted here where generations of my husbands family have existed. Our house, that Richard built (this is by far the best handmade gift I've EVER received), stands where my father-in-law planted potatoes, where my grandfather & great-grandfather-in-law both grazed their cows, and where my boys plant, play on and fertilize (they pee anywhere when the need takes them!!) our 'soil'.

Linking up with Ginny for Yarn Along and looking forward to seeing what everyone has making.
