Is it really time for another update already? Time seems to be flying by!
I decided that instead of casting on another pair of socks, I would knit one of the other projects from my list, and I settled on Hönkä. I've been meaning to knit this scarf since last year's list, so it was definitely time I started, and I know that it's the end of March, but I definitely have need for a warm scarf, since we have about a foot of snow that's fallen over the last 2 days or so.
The UK is not meant to look like this in March! This has also meant that we have a very pissed off cat, since he's under the impression that we are magical weather gods, and have sent this snow deliberately to annoy him.
I've managed two repeats so far, and it's very nearly 2 feet long, so I'm thinking 5 repeats will be the perfect length
The scarf itself is much more purple than it looks in this picture. The yarn is the one I've had in my stash the longest, as it was the yarn I learnt to knit with. However, it was originally knitted into an unfinished scarf which looked like this.
I think its new incarnation is much nicer, and much more likely to be worn. Plus it isn't triangular and full of accidental yarn overs, which is always a bonus.
I have also cast on for a pair of socks, because I needed a portable project, and two balls of yarn are not easy to transport around
The pattern is School Days, and I had forgotten how much I hate doing Judy's magic cast on for toe up socks, it took me at least 7 tries, so they're already in time out! Hopefully they can be worked on this week, and behave themselves a bit better.
It's going to be another busy week this week, but I finish my term on Thursday, and I get a whole 10 days holiday, including a trip to Cork for a trampoline competition, so I'm really excited. I've not been on a plane in 4 years!
