...and all worries have vanished.
Here is the finished, blocked scarf photographed (a bit overexposed, sorry) next to the brown/red one I did for the Red Scarf Project. I am thrilled with the way they turned out and I can't wait to give the blue one to my friend.
I was up at four this morning, cooking an egg for Abigail, who left shortly thereafter for NYC, where she will spend the rest of her vacation. Sadly, her parents are no longer the number one priority for New Year's Eve, which is also her birthday. Four o'clock in the morning, for me to be up, is.....well. I often don't get to bed before 1:30 or 2, so what does that tell you? But I gladly got up and cooked her breakfast and said a sad goodbye, then of course I could not go back to sleep. I spent two hours poring (not pouring) over the new seed catalogs (Amy, they came a day after yours did!), then laid down for a nap from 6:30 to 8:30. Now I'm up and don't really know what to do with myself.
I plan to knit until the ball drops -- or I do -- whichever comes first.
HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE!!!
Thank you for being a part of my life.
