Having to wait to cast on had it's advantages, however. I finished the first of a languishing pair of stripey vanilla socks and am well on my way down the leg of the second.
Yarn: Regia Design Line Kaffe Fassett, Landscape Jungle Colourway (4350)
Pattern: 64 stitch vanilla socks, with a heel flap 'cause I like 'em better with flaps
I wove in the ends of the Wild Apple Bohus hat I finished in... oh... March of 2011. (There were about a MILLION of them. It would have taken you a long time too. Ahem.)
I even joined Stephen West's Mystery Shawl KAL and got started on that.
Yarn: String Theory Caper Sock in Brina (Brown) and Viola Fancy Sock in Moonlit Heather (Purple)
And once the pattern finally arrived and I realized I now had to order some seriously pointy needles if I ever wanted to have a chance in heck of knitting this beast of a pattern, I did something drastic. Something that, to be honest, I never thought I would do. Ever.
Dudes, I totally finished the green scarf.
This scarf is what you knit out of the leftover yarn for the Wild Apple Bohus hat. The whole pattern is written out in 4 lines. It's almost an afterthought. And that's what it looks like, if we're going to be completely honest here. An afterthought. A "Oh by the way, the hat comes with this matching scarf" scarf.
But here's the thing: that's 132 cm (roughly 52 inches) of alternating rib knit on 2.0 mm needles you're looking at. I know it doesn't look like much, but trust me. It's a beast.
Happy Knitting, Everyone!
