As Tim Gunn would say...
...'that's a lot of look.'
So this is what I knit yesterday--this ruffly scarf that looks a bit like a boa and weighs absolutely nothing. It's Rowan Kidsilk Creation, which is pretty amazing. Basically, you get several yards of a Kidsilk Tube, and you knit the tube in such a way that you form ruffles. There's videos out there that explain it, and it is simple and literally takes an hour and a half to make this scarf.
It's not a scarf that will keep you terribly warm, and it is a bit fancy for me, but it is pretty fun. If I'm every dressed up then I would wear this. Also, if you know someone who would like this, it would make a great gift. Kind of ingenious!
Today is my 'just do it' day. School starts Monday and while I'm fine for classes, I've a list of things to do around the house and to get going for next week. We were up early today (Tim's Corvallis day) and I did one thing I've been wanting to do for a while: cleaned out my jewelry drawer.
Here's a question: what do you do with all your old fashion (costume) jewelry? I have a bunch of stuff from the late 80s that I love but looks very outdated now. I hate to throw it away. Any thoughts?
I also had the dogs out for a long walk (I kept thinking about cutting it short but said to myself 'just do it', mostly because it is a beautiful winter day--cold and clear). Now I'm going to read some Comp Exam answers and start on a new sweater.
