I’m on my second ball of my multicolored scarf so I guess I’ve committed to it. I like the way it is turning out.
The project is delightfully mindless and people think it is impressive looking. It’s quite deceptive. I was hoping to whip it out and shout “Bam! Look how fast I knit this scarf!” but, erm, I’ve only really worked on this for two days and scarves take longer than that when you are working on sekret knitting at the same time.
I love how the colors are working up, but I can’t quite figure out what is going on with the stripes. There are two different stripe patterns in each ball like the balls are made from two different dyelots but all of my balls are like this. There are knots where it changes and I can’t wrap my head around what is going on with this dyelot. It doesn’t bug me too much. I’ve been taking out the knots and adjusting things so that it isn’t a super dramatic change, but it still is odd.
In other news, that would be my passport. I just got it back with my UK visa inside!!! Yay!! That means I will definitely for sure be attending Lancaster University in October. I’m super excited and I’m glad to not have to worry about my visa anymore.
