Yeah, so Melanie's scarf is going to take me forever. It's my own fault for knitting on size ONE needles. I'm not sure what possessed me to do that. Except that I liked it. So it will be a long time project, and she'll be able to wear it next year for the winter.
I also decided to make a blanket for my boss for when I stop working for her in May when I graduate. She's a great boss, and I'd like to say thank you. She's big into browns and beiges. It's not my thing, really -- I like color. But she likes it, and it means that I can use some more of my stash. I'm quite excited about that. I decided to be sort of uniform about it rather than as random as I might have been otherwise (like I was with my mother's light blanket for the family room) but I feel like Tara might be happier with something more uniform. So this is it so far:
I also decided to make scarves for my two co-workers. One of them said that her favorite color is lavendar, so I'm starting a scarf for her in the light and lofty baby clouds lilac. I started it when I went to the movies last night to see Juno. I'm probably the only person who goes to the movies and knits. But I got a lot done on it.
