I have been knitting off and on. I brought the sock with me last Friday, but never actually pulled it out of my bag. Prime knitting time wasted, I know!

Anyway, I wanted something super simple and mindless to work on. The sock is basic, but I still have to deal with the five needles. So I started a scarf Monday night. That’s the longish red thing. It’s not Wavy although it kind of looks like it; it’s just mooshed up from being stuffed in a Ziploc. I’m using the Berlin Scarf pattern from Purl Bee. It’s knitting up into a really thick, lofty fabric that is going to be a pleasure to wear. Depending on who I get partnered with in the Facebook scarf exchange, I might use this pattern.
