may remember this from a 3.5 year old post. And really it's not any different, just finally longer.
It doesn't look too different, still that odd kind of double helix spiral/pooling thing happening through the pink, brown and white.
I am up to about 3.5 feet of scarf now, at least I think I am. I am intrigued yet again with how much faster a project can get towards completion when I actually work on it.
I think part of the reason it got shoved into the never never world of the bottom of the stash was that I'm not really close to the person I had in mind when I started the project. Without a specific person in mind, the project languished. I like the colors, they're interesting in how they look pooling and drifting in between each other, but this is not a project I'll wear. So once it's done it's going in the gift bin until I find it a good home.
Oh, that reminds me, I finally blocked the green sweater! Aaaaaand it's too big. The yarn grew a fair amount in a wet block (no I didn't swatch, stop smirking) and I'm debating if I toss it in the dryer for 15 minute cycles or not. As a big slouchy cardigan it's okay, but I wouldn't wear it to work and that's rather frustrating.
Not to worry though, I've rounded up 3 other sweater patterns that I think I want to knit 'next' along with Wendy Johnson's lovely new Mythic Mitts pattern. I'm waiting to see how many emails I get from friends and relatives with the strong suggestion that they would really like a pair of dragon mitts and maybe theirs could be in green or orange or blue or or or....
And I still have a third of a sock to try and finish in the next two days. Assuming I don't leave it at work again accidentally.
