All in a day's knitting

See all the super-fun, multi-directional scarves being knat in Harriet's scarf class? Okay, now imagine the middle one having to be completely frogged, which was a super-not-fun pain in the tushie, due to all the flippin' ssk decreases. But "Wooly Stripes" by Nashua is easy to knit, entertaining, and the color progressions within the skein are art itself. Too bad I take such lousy photos. The pale beach glass blue and celery green are lost on the middle scarf. Oh, not to worry. I put it all back, but added ten more stitches to the first triangle. Making a macho, manly scarf for my great-uncle. It's going to require an extra ball of yarn. The coolest thing is, of course, you can spit-splice anywhere you want, just in case the colors aren't moving along quite the way you'd hoped they would.
Now I really should be off to bed. I took my meds quite a while ago, and my spelling is atrocious (this is taking forever), but I should leave a note or three for anyone who might chance to be reading this.
1.) The fat pencils arrived today, and I'm bringing them with me to the shop, in case any of y'all what ordered them want to come pick them up. Or just get them Wednesday. I'll leave them there.
2.) The DVDs are stowed in my knitting trolley (well, I can't hardly call it a bag anymore, can I?), so if you're "oot and aboot" tomorrow, come get 'em. That way you'll have them all weekend.
3.) I very much require super-salty caramel corn, but as it is a.) not yet my birthday and b.) expensive and time consuming to come to the nether-regions that are Franklin, I realize my folly in craving caramelly corn. *sniff* *sigh* *sob*
Okay, I have to go to bed now... there seems to be two (or possibly five) keyboards in front of me... latah, gatahs. C

Oh, I've wanted to make that scarf since my friend Blogfree Jessica (at least she's a sock knitter) made me one for a gift. I love it. g

Very nice. I haven't done any multi-directional knitting. But I finished a freakishly cute hat! I'll be blogging about it in the next day or so :) It's got a lot of garter stitch...it would look smashing with one of them thar scarves.

Berry&Vine are much prettier than I thought! Can't wait until Wednesday. Eric wants his pencil. I should have tried it before offering to him. MY BIG MOUTH!
