Scarf in a Day
September 30, 2004
OK. I know. It’s a garter stitch scarf. It is what it is. But I’m telling you, it’s the most satisfying act of creation I’ve had since giving life to our Sea-Monkeys last summer.
I was on the phone yesterday, idly staring at the many, many balls of yarn that have somehow mysteriously accreted on my desk. Shouldn’t somebody knit something out of this stuff?
I noticed a combination that seemed kind of likely: see? Before I knew it, mid-phone call, I grabbed hold of the ol’ number 15s, cast on, and was cranking away on a combination of Euroflax Sport Weight Linen in Autumn and Fiesta Yarns mohair Heaven in Burnished Red.
I know you think I should be spending my precious knitting time on something more . . . dignified . . . something that is actual knitting.

There are at least a few signs of life in our screened porch project. It’s a roof! Sort of . . .
It isn’t like Jude Law is up there raising the barn, but then again, I’m no Nicole Kidman.
