So last night I finished the Jaywalker scarf, at about 4am. I didn't stay up till 4am, I was up at 2am tending to a puking cat. Ugh. Have I told you our cat is bulimic? She gorges and purges a lot. Poor thing.

So I decided to do the last 4 inches that I had left to make it 70" total instead of using all the yarn. Because I was pretty bored with it. It is sitting downstairs wet, and I'm hoping that the corn fiber will block, they did seem to lengthen, but I didn't pin it so who knows what I will get. It does have elastic in it, so I'm a bit worried. Will it feel the wrath of my iron? Ben thinks it is too skinny, so I'm kinda nervous. However, it is 10 degrees out today, so in his mind he thinks a winter scarf is a more appropriate gift. Do I go buy some big chunky fuzzy lime green yarn and make her two? I have no idea anymore.

Speaking of big fuzzy and chunky, I started a 3-way scarf. I have to use my Moda Dea Dream, and no projects called out to me, but I have to get this yarn out of my stash. Since it is quite cold out, I figured I could use a cowl. And if I make this simple one, I'll see if I will ever use the Ice Princess one I have lined up in Kidsilk Haze. However, I'm sure the Ice Princess is a much more fun knit.

I still plan on swatching for the tree jacket too. Oh, and I think I need to make a Dalek tea cozy. Because I'm THAT big of a dork.
