Well, it seems that it will be easier to have a plan for this year’s knitting (being the last year of my master’s) that involves a number of semi-mindless but cool patterns. Hence, the year of scarves. Everyone will get one for their birthday which totally takes me off the hook for Christmas knitting.
First up, Dad’s “Un-Noro Striped Scarf.” He probably wouldn’t like the Noro, and I just plain can’t afford it at the moment, so I’m making this with two colours of self-striping Patons. The effect isn’t quite the same as the Noro, but I like it and I think Dad will too.
