Sky Scarf

I was randomly screwing around on ravelry.com one night. You know ravelry.com, right? It's a place to find all kinds of knitting and crocheting projects. I don't usually use it because I tend to think of myself as too much of a novice to mess with the projects on there, but I ran across this project the sky scarf. It's a conceptual knitting project where you observe the sky every day for 365 days knitting only ONE row a day with colors that correspond to the daytime sky (I look out and note the sky at 2p every day). It's the first time that I've knit with multiple colors trading in and out using two strands. It's really confusing, and cleaning it up at the end is going to be a pain in the ass, but whatever. I'm really liking the way it's turning out so far. And to think, I'm only 7 days into a project!

The resurrection

Although it has been a very long time since I've posted (mostly because Dennis mentioned in one of his classes that I had a blog. I didn't feel comfortable blogging anymore once his students found it and subsequently told him about reading it), I'm going to try again. Hopefully, those students are gone from his classes, and don't remember or (ha!) began following it. I have 9 public followers, so I'm pretty sure none of them are following me.

Anyway, the point of this blog was to post progress on my sky scarf, keep myself accountable for my training for the mini marathon in May, and maybe update it with a bit of my life. I'd like to get back to the Say What Wednesdays again too.

So, anyway, I'm back!
