I finished the toe ups for Tim and here they are happily living on his feet. As you notice, though (or maybe you didn't) there's still a little gap where the heel transitions to the leg. Oof. I keep trying to close this up when I knit but I still don't get it. If you have suggestions let me know. Hopefully, the 'bloom' of the yarn from washing will help minimize this. Who knows. There's always the solution of a little piece of yarn tied in a knot to close it together.
I've been working on this scarf on-and-off for about a week now. It is the 'midwest moonlight' pattern from Scarf Style. I chose a pretty vibrant Fleece Artist yarn for this, and 'midwest oil refinery fire' might be a more appropriate name.
This scarf is likely to take forever. First of all, I have about 800 yards of the yarn and I want to use it all. Next, it takes about an hour to do the sixteen rows of the pattern. The sixteen rows progress me about 2 inches. So, if I want a 70 inch scarf, it will take a total of 35 hours. And that is if I don't have to frog a row here and there, which I will have to do, since it is lace. And all.
