half a scarf
I’ve been nearing the halfway point on this scarf for a while now, but I have no ability at all to judge how much yarn I have left with regards to how many rows I can expect to knit with it. The last 14 rows went like this:
oh i probably have two rows worth of yarn left
okay so maybe it’s four
all right i’ve done ten there’s definitely…a dropped stitch there… *fails utterly to fix it, rips out 3 rows*
okay well so at least i know i have 3 rows +1 left, there’s definitely not more than 1 row’s worth after tha…
ALL RIGHT THREE BUT DEFINITELY FOR SURE NOT MORE THAN FOUR BECAUSE I CAN SEE THE END OF THE YARN AND IT’S DEFINITELY NOT MORE THAN FOUR ROWS AWAY
…i hope i have enough yarn to finish this 4th row…
I did, and added the next skein on. The scarf is halfway done now. My phone isn’t good enough to make the pictures turn out well, because the yarn is much prettier and sparklier than this, but I’m far too lazy to get out the big camera and do something about the lighting to show it off more nicely.
I might add a tier on Patreon where I’ll knit you a scarf, though. :)
cowls & scarfs
I cast off on Indy’s scarf-not-a-scarf-way-too-short-totally-a-cowl-that’s-what-i-meant-it-to-be last week and today nerved myself up to try stitching it together to see if it would make a cowl or if I in fact had to tear the whole thing out and do it again. So I stopped halfway up the seam to see if it would fit over Indy’s head, and he loved it that way:
So I’ve declared it done. O.O :)
I started a scarf for me. (This will actually be a scarf, I have enough yarn.) The point of pride with this was successfully knitting a second color into the scarf so, woo woo, I’m very impressive!
I have big ambitious plans to make a matching scarf/hat/mittens set with this sparkly black and blue yarn. :)
My mother-in-law and a friend who knits came to visit for a couple of weeks, and the friend has left me a big pile of yarn that she brought with her but didn’t do anything with while she was here. I have thoughts for a couple of the yarns (at least a couple more scarves; look, I’m not wildly ambitious here right now, okay?) and I’m sorta chuffed to have the stuff to experiment with, so it’ll be fun over the next several months. Or more. :)
I cast on!
I cast on! I cast on! I don’t know what to do next, but I cast on! (I’ll figure out what to do next tomorrow. I felt casting on was sufficiently impressive for one day. It only took three tries and watching a video 15 times. :))
I’m terribly proud of myself. :)
