I've been dog sitting this week, and the time I would spend knitting (5:00 AM to 7:00 AM) has been spent getting ready for work and travelling, and I still get to work later than when I'm at home. So very little knitting has gotten done. I did finish Mike's scarf at knit night on Friday, but not much else has been done. When I get home on Sunday, I shall devote the following six days to making Tim's scarf (same yarn, different colour), attempting to knit 10 inches each day. Like The Little Engine that Could,
The other knitting I've brought along with me while dog sitting is what will probably turn out to be the last of the Honey Cowls (number six!). In Madeline Tosh Vintage (as opposed to DK), the colourway is Tart. That always makes me laugh. I'd show a picture, but I'm only about eight rows from casting on, and it doesn't look like much except a tangled schmatta on circular needles. But I think it will be gorgeous when done.
I'm still trying to determine a pattern for my niece's scarf. I like Malachite (free pattern on Ravelry) by Alina Appasova. It looks like this (please note that I did not knit this sample, that I ganked the photo from the Ravelry page):
I really am feeling confident that I can pull it all off (well, the revised knittery), and finish this cowl, two more scarves, a sweater, and then three more cowls. Like the picture above says, I think I can, I think I can!
