**This article was written last Friday. Then it was my birthday weekend, and I forgot to post it.**
So I started this project after I finished my lovelies, and got to the point where I was afraid i’d run out of yarn, so I packed the red scarf on Wednesday, because I had a slightly longer train ride and ‘hurry up and wait’ time before a work-related event, and made pretty good progress on it.
Last night, after a rather tragic dance class, I thought about putting the striped socks (which I haven’t really talked about on here) back into my purse, along with the scarf – incase I ran out of yarn today.
This morning, after not sleeping well due to said tragic dance class, I failed to put the stripes into my purse, and ran out of yarn at lunch. I’m sitting on the train ride heading home with NO YARN. Blogging is hard to do from a cell phone, but it’s better than nothing…
The really annoying thing is that it’s fairly chilly outside, and I wouldn’t mind having finished the scarf, so that I could wear it while walking to the train. Unfortunately, I ran out of yarn about 10 rows before the end of the actual scarf. I’m mentally going through the stash, and I’m fairly certain that I have some leftovers at home. If I don’t, I will have wasted a perfectly good train ride that could have been spent ripping back a repeat and finishing the thing so that I could wear it on the walk home from the train.
In other news, it’s cold enough to need wool again. The majority of me is quite angry about that, as I insist that it can’t be cold until AFTER my birthday… which is Monday. On the other hand, the rest of me is pretty excited to be able to show off my knitted stuff nonchalantly by simply wearing it and
insisting on waiting for compliments.
Also, I think I made a mistake by skipping that last repeat on the lovelies, since I’m kind of annoyed that my knuckles are exposed. I may be fixing that sometime soon.
*** End of Friday’s train article***
So, after I got home on Friday, I searched for the rest of my red yarn, and failed to find what I was fairly certain I had. So I had indeed wasted the entire train ride home. On Saturday night, I ripped back a repeat, and finished up the ribbed end of the scarf. It certainly requires a blocking, and I think it might be a bit too short, so we’re calling it the Cathedral Scarflette.

I also finished up the socks, and turned them inside out to weave in the ends from the stripes.
I’m never making striped socks again.
