The Great Scarf Marathon


I have been knitting the same scarf for 4 weeks. Well, not really, but that's what it feels like. I've actually knit 4 scarves, in the same pattern, in 4 different colors. But it really feels like one great big scarf after a while. Miles and miles of wool and alpaca, yo's, k2tog's; I'm on mile 18 and fading fast. 2 more to go, max, and I'm pretty much done with holiday knitting. To clear my head a little, I went back to my Knitwhits Flore Hat I'm making for my new niece. Should have that one finished by the weekend.

Right now I'm consumed with Thanksgiving prep. So many things left to do! What would Martha say if she could see my ghetto seating and tarnished silver? I don't really care; I just want everything to be edible and no firetrucks involved. Wish me luck!

What I really want to do is knit this sweater from Zephyr pictured above (Rusted Root). I've got the yarn just languishing in the guest room. But I guess the fam would be just a little upset if there was no turkey and trimmings to eat tomorrow. I might be upset too, but I'd be upset in a really groovy sweater, and that would make me not really that upset at all.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
