I'm so embarrassed.

Okay, so I haven't been knitting much. If you read my knitting blog (or lack thereof) you can figure that out. It is either I'm not knitting, or I'm knitting so much that I don't have time to document my flurry of needles and yarn. I'm too much of a finished project ho to not show off, so it is the lack of knitting.

Anyway, I'm trying to be witty here. To make up for something sick I need to just spit out. I need to just do it. It won't be the obvious part of the sentence that makes me embarrassed either.

I am having a great time knitting a garter stitch scarf in homespun.

Lets look at this:

great time + knitting = duh! Of course
garter stitch scarf = I've never knit one before. It is actually not so bad on size 15s with doubled yarn! It is kind of fun.
homespun = dread, but it isn't that bad. I'm more embarrassed of knitting a garter stitch scarf on size 15s!

So yes, instead of knitting my mittens mate (which was in my bag) I am 90% done a garter stitch scarf. It will be done by the time the "wintery mix" hits us.

I'll still finish the mitten, but right now, simplicity is rocks my socks!

Sometimes, we need a break from the more complex projects around us. I know that while I was making the Knitty Manly Mitts, I had a plain pattern on the side (Cardigan for Arwen). Breaks are GOOD!

I've been working on fair isle mittens and a ski band with tiny size 2 needles.....that's my idea of stress release :)
however there is a scarf I'd like to make that calls for size 19 needles!
We watch a the News Hour with Jim Lehrer, and boy does it look cold in your neck of the woods!

sorry to hear about Raven, very sad
