I finished my thousand mile scarf.

It’s just plain old garter stitch, knit in Patons Shetland Chunky Tweed. I started it this summer when faced with a car ride from Kentucky to Florida.

I’m slightly amused that my solution to boredom was something that would bore others to tears under normal circumstances.

Little fact: This was my first garter stitch scarf.  I skipped the regulatory garter stitch scarf when I learned to knit.

I’ve also been working on my oldest WIP.

I’m about halfway done with my clapotis at this point and I should finish sometime this month. I’m excited about finally finishing it, and I’m hoping the snow is all gone so that I can photograph it somewhere other than my roommates lazyboy chair!
