I am still working on my Martha Stewart neck scarf. I really haven't taught myself anything but knitting and purling, so this increase and decrease thing is quite new. Shaping scares me a bit. I did learn how to use a cable needle for my scarf, but this process is a little different. I am at the end of making the little hole for the end of the scarf to slide through. This yarn is way too bulky, so it is making the knitting a bit difficult. I can see why they said sport weight. Hopefully it will still be a wearable project.
On another note, I have made a little progress on my straight knit stitch Fishermans wool scarf. I call this my car project. I leave it in there and anytime I have a few minutes or 30 while I am waiting on a child to be done with something-(choir, Bible study, school, etc) I knit a few rows. One day it will be finished and every time I wear it I can think back to all the activities I knit into it. My kids are growing too fast. My son will be driving at the end of this month and my oldest now has her driving privileges back after a 3 month doctor imposed "no drive" period. I will not be the taxi service for much longer.
