Knitting stuff and going on and on.

One down, 17 to go.

Ha, Ha, like that's actually going to happen.

A very soft, silky short scarf, ...

as modeled by: Woman-with-really-bad-hair-hidden-under-hat.
It can be worn like a tie with the short end hidden behind or

Jabot style. My personal preference. Once I get another one knit up, I should have the kinks worked out and be able to post the pattern here.

In the meantime, a square for Comforting Jenn hopefully finished today. So I can get going on everything else.

Meet the other member of the family. She has lived with us for nearly two years, but doesn't get many photo ops due to the difficulty of capturing moving fish in an interesting or clear way. Her name is Dorothy as in the name of the fish on Elmo's World and she lives in the annoying useless corner behind the sink. Having her there makes having to scrub pots much more interesting.

Must get back to knitting now. So much to do. Sigh, why must I be so good at procrastinating?


  • I like the short scarf/jabot. I have some Lousia Harding ribbon that would make a really pretty one to jazz up a plain turtleneck this winter. Where did you find the pattern?

    Love the wrecked car in Dorothy's tank. LOL!

  • What a lovely scarf!

    We used to have a fish named Dorothy, but she kept getting overfed. Poor Dorothy!

  • love the color! looks like a great scarf. As for Dorothy, looks like she needs some remedial driving lessons! But I hear it is hard for fish to get the hang of a stick shift...

  • I really love your scarf, the color is so lovely and it looks so great being worn in those different ways! Great job!
    Oh, Dorothy the fish is a beauty! And that wrecked car in her tank is a scream! ;)

  • Love the scarf! Good luck with the remaining 16 ;)

    And I thought I'd be the only one to notice it... but does 'Dorothy' know there's an overturned vehicle in her abode? Hope the occupants got out safely.
