At the start of the new session one of our instructors asked us what we did over the weekend. I informed her I started a new knitting project and she replied, â€œIsnâ€™t that wishful thinking!â€ Maybe it was an unconscious omen to the weather gods to cool off these hot temps. I mean, donâ€™t you want to knit a nice warm scarf on a 90+ degree day with 50% humidity? Who wouldnâ€™t, right? Perfectly normal thing for a normal human to do. (At least Iâ€™m not working on the afghan…I really do need to wait for cooler weather to tackle that project. It is hot to hold on oneâ€™s lap.)
Well, 2 weeks later and Iâ€™m done. (Note the afghan is going on 3 years and counting now and still not done.)
Woo-hoo! Well, Iâ€™m sort of done. Iâ€™ve got the ends off the needles but havenâ€™t woven the tails in yet. Why might you ask? Must the great mammoth afghan finish first?
Iâ€™m just not sure Iâ€™m happy with the ends. They donâ€™t flow with the scarf pattern (5 braided strands). The ends are like a big lumpy geometric high school math class against the flowing soft undulating waves of serenity that is the body of the scarf. You can see the dilemna even if I donâ€™t have a picture posted. So whatâ€™s a girl to do? Thankfully it is still too hot to wear a scarf so Iâ€™ve got some time to think it over. I want it to be right because all of the yarn was gifted to me and I want to appreciate that. Ryan assures me that Iâ€™m just crazy and that is why Iâ€™m fretting. Maybe heâ€™s right.
