Well, it was bound to happen. I am an extremely monogamous knitter ordinarily but something about knitting two pairs of lace socks in a row has gotten to me. Or perhaps it's the restlessness of waiting for fall to hit. Who knows?
Yes. So, I cast on a bulky scarf even though the second Campanula sock is not yet finished. Trust me, this is a very big scandal around here.
The free pattern is Short Row Rib Scarf by Ceris Morgan. Found in Magknits, warm 2005. Yarn: Noro Transitions. Needles: US 11.
The pattern is fun and the yarn is lovely but I'm not sure if I like it yet. Why? 7.5 inches is a little wider than I'm used to for a scarf and it's going to take more than the 2 skeins I have on hand to complete it. If I'm going to stick it out, I'll have to work in another color from my stash and hope for the best.
I don't have a lot of Noro experience and this is my first Transitions knit. It's a nice yarn that changes fiber content as it changes colors. This is impressive since different fibers usually require a different amount of twist in spinning. By the way, the angora parts of the yarn do shed a bit, for those curious.
I also decided if I was going to cheat, I might as well keep going. I don't even know who I am anymore. I knit a small swatch of the Mulberry yarn I scored from Spinning Yarns Online. Man I love this yarn! They're having a 10% off your first purchase sale, by the way.
So it seems not only am I a cheater, I am an enabler as well. I guess if I am venturing down a dark path I want some company. And yet even as I write this I am feeling badly about the unfinished sock. I am going to have to eventually accept my nature as a monogamous knitter. Even though in this moment, technically, I am an Adulterer.
