Singing, We all live in a yellow submarine

Two hundred thirty-odd yards on size 5s in one day while running multiple errands. This was so not going to happen.

Then I got another email that gave me yet another reason (though the sender didn’t know it) exactly why it had to be finished *now*. So I started winding the ball into another ball, weighing it till I got it at exactly half, and after not having wanted to ply that yarn as a six-strand because that was too bulky, I ended up knitting it at eight: one strand from each half ball. Sixty-six stitches on size 9s was doable in the time I had, barely, but doable.

It was pretty chunky looking as I worked–but ohmygoodness that yarn was SO soft. More of that up against the neck, nobody would mind.

I kept going till there wasn’t enough yarn for another repeat.

It’s blocking. Hey tomorrow: ready when you are.

oh yah – and me without my spoon. As she contemplates asking the cooks to weigh the ball for the scarf in progress so when she gets half way….
