You think I wouldn’t?! When you just wanna get the blocking process done and your blocking board takes up 2/3 of your bed, you’ll consider it.
Forgive the shoddy blocking. I wasn’t going for perfectly straight edges because it’s a scarf. It’s just going to get wrapped around some part of the body and well, the edges will be all curled up and stuffed which-ever-way. I was going more for opening up the YOs in the pattern.

Yarn: KnitPicks Gossamer in Leprechaun
Needle: US 5(3.75mm) bamboo circ
Started: April 14th? 2007
Finished June 1, 2007
Thoughts: I didn’t work it as long as most other scarves are done because, although the pattern is easy to memorize, after a while it wears on you, being so easy. The length it is suits me just fine.
I’m also done with knitting Daisy sweater number 1. All that remains is seaming and buttoning. Gosh. I’m not that thrilled with seaming raglan sleeves Why would anyone think to have that as part of a pattern anyway? I would think that raglans are the EASIER thing to do when you just wanna knit your sweater all in one piece, especially from the top down. I’m seriously considering making the mate sweater in a slightly different pattern. Same seed stitch border, but with a modified drop-shoulder sleeve. You’ll see it again when it’s closer to done.
The mate will be with a black background. I’m just gonna have to dye the rest of the yarn black because I really think the little men will pop better on a dark background. Should have just done that in the first place, but I wanted to be different :p .
That’s all for today folks. See ya ’round!
