I’m narrowing down the possibilities for meeting knitting in preparation for the marathon that will be next week. Below are the finalists. I just need to go through the stash now to see whather any yarns volunteer to be knit up into these projects.
2 and 3. His (Birthday) Scarf and the Have a Heart Scarf, both from Smoking Hot Needles. These are slightly more complicated, but each has a striking, clear pattern, so I’d have no trouble knowing if I’d gone off course.
4. The Keep Me Warm Cowl (it’s a Ravelry download, so you’ll have to have a log-in to get it) by Breeanelyse. This pattern is not only lovely, but has the virtue of being written for Malabrigoâ€”which moves it right to the top of my list.
5. This heavy-weight, textured neck-warmer from Drops. It’s mostly moss stitch with a bit of ribbingâ€”I could keep that going through even the most mind-numbing of meetings.
6. The Abby Cowl from the new Knitty. This is a simple enough lace stitch that, even with 18 rows, I could keep it going comfortably while making my own meetingly contributions to the group’s (as opposed to my personal) work-at-hand.
It will all depend on what the yarn says to me.
