Eamonn and I were baking bread last week when he said, out of the blue, “how come you don’t knit anymore?”
The honest answer? I was in the middle of a Spring scarf sometime in April, when I got to the end of the skein, and I was too lazy to go upstairs for the second one. And then I just completely forgot I was even in the middle of a project.
It might have sounded better just to say “I don’t like to knit in hot weather” 😉
At any rate, his question reminded me about the scarf, and I finished it up a few days ago.
I used 12 pegs of the little blue knifty knitter, and just garter-stitched until I had a piece long enough to reach my hips after being wrapped once around my neck.
I still have to weave in the ends – that alone is enough to make me want to stick to one-skein projects. I don’t enjoy that part of the process, and frankly I’m kind of bad at it. Aside from that, though, I’m pretty happy with it. It’s a cotton/viscose blend, so it’s not out of the question to wear it on a cool Summer morning.

Next on my knitting list? I really want to try Cold Mountain. I may be crazy, though 😀
