this ribbed scarf is like popcorn! It is suitably brainless, so I can work away on it in the heat, and listen to a tape or CD. There is enough going on that my brain is nominally engaged, and I see some progress. And I want to keep going! Remember the pathetic nostepinne of yarn -- the yarn that was wrapped around the flourescent green highlighter? That has been all reknit, and I'm now on the smaller of the 2 balls of yarn. I'm past 36 inches of scarf knit too!
Tomorrow I drive Howard to an all day meeting, so I'm planning to take the scarf, book on tape, and maybe something else to knit. This is going to be some good knitting time!
