Even if this blog has no intrinsic value, it has motivated me to organize and finish up projects that have been languishing (mostly off the needles). I've reworked the SnB Windy City scarf into something I enjoy wearing, and have even managed to weave in all the ends (54, after splitting yarn into 2-ply!). I've now learned that it is important to weave in as I go, so the chore is not so large at the end. As a further exercise in delayed gratification, I was not going to release DNA scarf #1 from the blocking board until I was done with this scarf. This was a wise idea, since I did not experience a rise in excitement level at being close to done, even when weaving in the last two ends. Alas, the DNA scarf was still slightly damp, so I've moved it from the (cold) basement to an upstairs room.
