Here is one of the scarves I am making for my surgery. Problem is, it's only half done. You would think that bulky yarn and garter stitch would make for a fast scarf, well, it doesn't. I couldn't find the same shade of blue so I had two options: I could go a darker blue or go lighter with a white/cream. I choose the lighter. I figured it wouldn't look so stark up against the blue. You can see a little of it here. basically it's going to be half blue and half creamy white. It needs to be long enough to go through the loop and hang down a decent amount.
I have been working on the other scarf as well. I really like the feel of the yarn but it is as slow as the blue scarf. I am at 24 inches and need 42 at least. Then I'm not even done. I need to knit on the edging of ruffles. In the dark recesses of my mind I am contemplating not knitting on the ruffle. I can always do it later if I want, that's the cool thing about this. It is very demoralizing to knit and knit and never get anywhere.
I'm doing a row here and there on the hat for Joel and a scarf for dad.
