Answer? A challenge. So despite my incredible joining tendencies (which apparently only apply to knitting, since I am SO not a joiner in real life) I will not be participating in the Knitting Olympics. Instead I will complain about how I have now started my mobius strip scarf three times and might still go on to four before the night is through. I finally came to terms with the fact that I just don’t have enough yarn to make what I want, so I decided to join in on the knitting Valentine’s Day scarves for foster kids in college. It is red yarn after all. The thing is, I don’t think I’ll have enough yarn for that either at my current width. Bah.
On a more positive note, I went to a new knitting group tonight. So now I’ve got two. This one is every other week and I meet a friend at her work, we get dinner and then go together. I had a great time. We’re going to do game nights on the non-knitting Tuesdays. I’m really looking forward to it. Oh, and there was a journalist there who interviewed us for an article on the resurgence of knitting. I thought all of those had been written already, but it made for fun conversation regardless.
Little did you know this was a post in progress. I recast for an even narrower scarf and I’m just gonna go for it. Wish me luck. This confirms it though, when a garter stitch scarf is a challenge, it is not time to join the Knitting Olympics.
