October Scarf

The October Scarf is finished. It's the only knit I managed to finish in October, although I would have loved to have finished the Welsh Country Stockings for Socktoberfest. Alas, it was not to be. At least the two ends of this scarf have the same number of stitches in them now. This was three skeins of Noro Kureyon, and now I am thoroughly addicted to this yarn. I love the long stretches of color and the way they blend one into another. It's all I can do to not head out and order a bunch more. I have an overwhelming craving right now to knit in bright colors. Perhaps it's a reaction to the general grimness that visits to a care center involve. And right now all my WIPs seem to be in shades of gray and black and muted colors. Except for the Sock Yarn Log Cabin blankie, but I'm not working on that right now. I'm debating about how much Christmas knitting to do. At any rate, there may be some startitis going on this week. Quite probably in colors other than gray and black.

The scarf is wonderful! And yes, use bright color therapy. Even if you knit dishcloths, knit in bright colors!!

(It looks like that one path goes straight up. You ARE an intrepid hiker!)
