Gary, the very squarey Stashbuster, is grooooowing.
At 5 feet, I am looking only about 40% finished with this ample scarf. But that's because, since I deeply deplore the effort of weaving in ends, I am making it double-sided. Isn't it ironic how some knitters (please understand that when I say "some knitters" I really mean just me) are willing to go to great lengths, literally, expressly to avoid a couple hours of finishing? I mean, each of these squares are taking me up to two hours apiece. And I am entirely willing to indenture my soul to more than ten times the amount of work just so that I don't have to pick up a fucking crochet hook? Somehow it's supposed to make sense, I promise.
It's a fun knit, though, to say the least. I have a rebounding appreciation for garter stitch that was lost pretty much as soon as I learned to purl. Now I'm realizing that garter stitch can be pretty dope in its own way. Especially, it seems, in squares that resemble...
a very pixelated coral reef.
Or... hey, now that I think about it, that Windows XP desktop wallpaper of a desert. Nah'mean?
It wasn't intentional.
Not much else getting bigger in the knitting realm, just my big squarey scarf. Also pictured are: Pride and Prejudice on CD (I cheat at school by pumpin' up the Elizabeth Bennet on my car stereo) and a housing application for UK. Go Cats?
