victory! (with a small "v")
now has two ends, and is hanging in my shower, drying. The small "v" above is because... well, I'm not terribly happy with it, and if it was a gift, or to actually wear, I wouldn't be happy at all. However, if you were to run by your computer screen and just glance quickly at it, you wouldn't see the error that is jumping up and down and screaming at me in the next photo. If you actually inspect it for longer than a fifteenth of a second, you'll see it too.
Go ahead and try the running thing, though (and if you're at work, please let me know what you tell your boss is the reason you're running by your computer screen.)
The "bad end" is on top here:
And here's the good end:
If I hadn't been so exhausted, and doing the final stitches on this after midnight last night (see, the benefit to not sleeping while waiting for medical test results is getting more knitting time in) I might have taken the time to fix the error. But Aslan was jumping up and down, begging me to come to bed, and I was bleary eyed and groggy, and the scarf is going to be hanging on a wall and folded (in a fake "worn" shape around a cardboard cut-out of a throat) so I think it'll do. I'll just make sure they don't tell anyone who knit the second end.
This morning is my wacky knitting class - this group of women just laughs the entire time. One of them has to mutter "don't look up his skirt" everytime she does the first stitch of a row. It's that kind of wacky. They're great fun, and I'm bringing my camera, so maybe I'll have pictures of what they're working on. Then tonight I actually have a date with my husband, then tomorrow I'm off to spend a spinning weekend with a dear friend, whom I'm very much looking forward to seeing.
