I have been working on the scarf that will never end. I was unsure about the colors at the beginning, but decided to give it some time. Now that I am halfway through, however, I have decided that they really don’t work. But, because I am WAY behind in my holiday knitting, some unlucky teacher will be getting the scarf anyway because if I rip it out I will be so far behind that I will never catch up. I keep telling myself that once it is blocked, it will look great. Because blocking can cure anything, right?
When M called to check in tonight, however, I left my knitting unattended on the couch with the dog asleep in the corner. I answered the phone, walked back into the family room, and found the dog with yarn trailing from his mouth, and my only size 4 needles snapped in half. Clearly the Knitting Gods disapprove of my decision to continue knitting the color challenged scarf.
