In mid-November, I suddenly had a strange and urgent desire to knit a fine-gauge dark brown scarf, long enough to wrap a couple times around my neck or possibly strangle an unknowing terrorist, if the need arose. This was strange because I actually really do NOT like brown, I tend to avoid it, despite it being the color of chocolate. So that was weird, but I grabbed 4 skeins of Dale of Norway’s Baby Ull in a luscious dark brown and cast on 70 sts on size 4 needles and proceeded to k2, p2 forever. I loved it. I knit and knit and knit, night after night… loving every minute of it… not straying from my one project, until lo and behold, suddenly it was done! Geez, it really does work… if you keep knitting on something, it becomes “finished”. Wow. I love my scarf so much! It was easy and yet so satisfying to knit.
