The scarf is what is on my needles today.
Another color has shown up. I expected some kind of green, but it turned out to look purple. I'm going to start the second ball from the outside in because I think it will work out better that way. The colors might go in reverse order and end up the darker blue, but I truly don't know.
This was an inexpensive wool blend yarn from Walmart. It is not the cheapest yarn they carry, but I don't really expect that they were careful about color changes. They were from the same dye lot, but I'm not sure how much that will matter.
The pattern is a simple lace pattern. It looks more textured in the photo than anything else. Even though every other row is a pattern row, it is very easy to do because you can read the pattern more than you are counting it, although I am doing both. An almost perfect watching TV project.
The scarf is beginning to grow on me. Who knows. I might even keep it.
I have never had two knitting projects going at the same time. I do that with quilting projects because they are always at different stages. But I know that the first sock will not be a TV watching project. So I just might start one again since I am trying, yet again, a new process.
