I swear I'll never...

Knit a scarf on anything smaller than a size 10.... Or so I told myself 5 or 6 years ago when I finally finished a scarf on 8s. It was a solid yellow scarf in Lion Brand cotton-ease for Richard. I think it took me months to knit.

Now, I default to size 8s for scarves. I've even knit one on size 5 needles (Rabbit-proof Scarf). I must have lost my mind. I went from loving 10.5s to loving 8s. What happened?

Anyways, the scarf above is Larissa's Cream of Spinach scarf. And yes, I do knit a lot of her patterns. She's local and cool, so why not? (time referance: I cast on this scarf Monday and I'm 1/4 done)

I'm using my left over 1/2 skein of Woobu in Spinel. On, yes, size 8 needles... my fave pair, Knit Picks Harmony. I'm not really sure who I'm knitting this for, but I thought I should start on my Christmas knitting now instead of waiting until it's too late. I'm also thinking about entering it in the Oregon State Fair if I finish it in time (um, I should look at the dead-lines... probably passed already?) I'm going to see who likes it the most as I knit it and then surprise them in December (my sis-in-law might have already won, though).

I've learned to never say never when it comes to knitting! Things have a way of just happening...
