...but barely! The Griffindor Scarf of Doom is about to put me right to sleep. It is about 3 o'clock in the afternoon and I can barely keep my eyes open. In case you're wondering, I'm less than 1/2 way done with Stripe #12 (which puts me more than half way done with the scarf--proof of a merciful God). My jogless joins look a little joggier than I'd hoped but I have several more stripes to practice on.
On the positive side, working with the Cascade 220 Superwash is a dream. What a wonderful yarn! I don't think I have ever used the Superwash before. It is so soft and yet crisp all at the same time. I love it. Another positive is that this will make a truly warm & comforting scarf (if I don't die of boredom before it is done). The Irish & Celtic Music podcast has kept me company quite a bit today. Thank you, Marc Gunn.
The truth is I would love to have a nice warm scarf like this, and maybe I would feel better about it if I weren't under a deadline. I think that's the secret to enjoying making one of these--that or taking up machine knitting!
