However, there are also many other things I could be doing, such as tidying up the house a bit, as I hate to walk into a crazy-looking house after a long vacation. But Brendan will be here in the house for five days without us. He'll either mess it up or clean it up, right? Why bother cleaning? :D
So instead I'll just put up a picture of the scarf I finished last night:
It's really cute, if I do say so myself. It was a pretty easy pattern, too, and I was able to knit the last third or so of it without even glancing at the pattern to remind myself what was next. It's a good length, too. Taller than me, though that's not saying much, heh.
This project represents something of a departure for me in knitting, too. It's the first project where I've taken the time to fix my mistakes and re-knit some stuff. Usually, I can't be bothered (and usually, I'm knitting something for practice so it doesn't truly matter).
I'm so glad it turned out well, and that it's finished! But, but . . . what will I knit during the trip? Oooh . . . I think I just had another great procrastination idea: flip through my books and pick a knitting project for the trip! Wow, I amaze even myself sometimes.
I hope to be tweeting pictures and other fun updates while I'm gone, so if I don't make it back here for a while, find me on Twitter and/or Facebook. I promise always to amuse. Well, amuse myself, that is.
See ya in the Land of Beer and Cheese!
