Definitely worth the boredom

I finally finished knitting the Mountain Stream Scarf on Thursday, and blocked it on Saturday. Needless to say, I am super happy about this!

(The first photo is a bit truer to color.)

Finer yarn and needles, mostly. I also have no idea how many repeats I knit; I just kept knitting until I was nearly out of yarn.

I enjoyed knitting this until I got about halfway through, and then I got bored with it for awhile. Because, well, it’s a scarf, and scarves usually drag. Turning the corners was fun, though, and it went pretty quickly. I really liked the actual construction, it’s quite clever and I’d like to use it again sometime.

Also, I really like the finished product. It’s pretty and light and airy, which makes it a great San Diego “fall” accessory.

Yes, I’m a slacker

So I said I would post a picture of my newest lace WIP, and look, I’m actually doing it! (More than a few weeks late, admittedly. But better late than never, right?) Here goes:

This is a Mountain Stream Scarf, using the yarn leftover from the Tina Shawl. The pictures I took last week didn’t turn out so well, so this picture is from early April. But the scarf doesn’t look much different now – it’s just several repeats longer.

Surprisingly, I’m still not completely bored with it. I think part of it is because for some reason, I find the edging slightly non-intuitive. Also, believe it or not, but this is my very first garter-stitch-based project. So I’m not really used to reading my knitting in this sort of ground and it occasionally confuses me. Oh well. I’m sure I’ll get used to it at some point.
