In other knitting news, I can't believe I used to be a monogamous knitter. I'd work one project through til completion then I'd start another. I've been spending a lot of time in waiting rooms lately. Sitting doing nothing drives me crazy and I'm too distracted to read. I liked this scarf the first time I saw it. The plus is that it is big yarn and can be knit on large needles. I thought it was a mindless knit until I realized that when I joined the second ball of yarn my short rows were going in the opposite direction! It's the Short Row Scarf, a free pattern from Berroco. I'll tink it back to the join next week.
I finished machine knitting 2 hats, just have to do the hand work. I'll do it in the car next week.
I also joined the Cowl KAL in the Shirley Paden Ravelry group. The KAL started today and ends on the 28th. Just 14 days and works out to about 8 rows a day. It's an easy pattern with 3 rows of K3, P3 and 1 pattern row. The pattern is in her book, Design Knit Workshop.
Unfortunately, I'm beginning to feel all this knitting. I won't do anything else now until we leave on Sunday to give my hands and arms a break. I finally have an appointment week after next. Hopefully it won't be much longer before this pain is just a distant memory!

CiCi and Chelette at 2 Sistahs Knit Together had a GiveAway and I was one of three winners. I received the new Interweave calendar, 2 pieces of chocolate AND 412 yards of Bugga Handpainted Sock Yarn in the Dragon Millipede colorway. It is absolutely gorgeous. I'm already thinking of what to make. If you're not already reading their blog hop over and check them out! Thanks CiCi and Chelette!
