It slices, it dices, it can save the world!
Ok, not really. But the seemingly never-ending Chevron Scarf is finished. Ends have been woven, and the scarf has been blocked (yes, you do need to block it even if the pattern doesn't explicitly state that. Otherwise it puckers, for obvious reasons.)
There's not that much I can really say about it. It's a simple, boring knit. Size 5 needles. 2 skeins Lorna's Laces. Knit until you run out of yarn. It took me about 3 weeks of working on it sporadically. Mindless, but the final result is kind of pretty, although too thin. Reminds me a bit of the marbleized endpapers you find in old books. It's rather purple, and a little moody, but I could see myself wearing this with a black sweater. I won't be going out of my way to make this again, but I would consider making one for a friend if she asked for one. I did use up some stash that I wanted to go away.
And just for fun, this is an in progress shot of the Rib and Cable sock that just seems to have happened. Simple, but with enough going on to keep it from being totally boring. This is my wandering around knitting, something I throw in my bag for spare moments.
Juno Regina is the current television knitting. I've knit about 6" of the 42" of a two-line pattern repeat. I have a feeling this will be sitting next to me for a while.
Oh, and if you were wondering about the last post - it's not me, but I don't really want to talk about it, at least not now.
