Progress has been slow on the Shine scarf by Janina Kallio. Frequent interruptions tend to do that. You may recall that this was the scarf I was going to take with me to Stockholm last summer.
Another scarf (by the same designer) for a friend who was going to Denmark, cut in front of this one in line. That was interruption #1. Below is what it's going to look like once completed, for those having trouble trying to visualize exactly what that pile is going to turn in to.
I also took a wrong turn about halfway in and had to rip out a lot. That was interruption #2. When I laid it out on the table the other day, and took stock of the situation, I knew I was in trouble.
With only a little yarn left, no matter how hard I tied to fool myself into thinking otherwise, there was not going to be enough.
So I did what any self-respecting knitter would do, and ordered another skein of yarn.
Then took it off the needles, went back to the place where I had started to skip rows because I knew it was going to be close, and picked up from there.
Now I am happily knitting away again, as I wait for my yarn, because as Angie would say "anything worth doing is worth doing right". That's what she used to tell my sister anyway. But that's another story, for another time.
P.S. My favorite knitting teacher, Mary, is the one who first told me about Janina Kallio. Prepare to be delighted by her designs.
