I ripped back the rows I had done on the blue Calmer sweater and put it back on the needles. I don't think it's going to be hard to figure out, but since I was a little bit lightheaded under the influence of Mucinex-D (damned sinuses), and I was awaiting the arrival of a refrigerator repair guy, I decided to cast on for my next red scarf. This always seems to be the right answer. I worked on this for maybe a half hour before Mr. Jefferies convinced me to take him outside to play.
It's Briar Rose Fibers' Nate's Sock Yarn in colorway 108. Generally I'm not a huge fan of space-dyed yarns, but I love the subtle variety of short-run reds in this. It gives my eyes and brain pleasure as I'm knitting, and the yarn is nice and soft. It's sportweight, and I'm using US 7 needles and 37 stitches. If you don't recognize the pattern, it's the now-ubiquitous and ever-appropriate Corrugator by Paula Smith.
I can't tell you how good it feels to be pain-free again, and to feel like knitting.
