All Scraps Must Go!

In my desk I keep a drawer for all the yarn scraps from the projects I've worked on. It's my goal for that drawer to be empty one day, instead of overflowing and getting stuck when I try to open it. To this end, I keep working my way through trying to find small projects that will suit them. I've managed to complete three more.

The first is a "Knecklace" from the Winter '05 issue of Knitty. Until I blocked it, I was sure I'd have to frog and untangle the yarn but a good steam helped shape it.

The next is my latest Calorimetry headband. I realized that if I was going to roll out of bed early enough on Saturday to catch the St. Patrick's Parade that passes by my apartment I might as well make something to wear. I forgot about it last year and woke up wondering who the hell was making that racket. When I opened my curtains and spotting the floats passing by it all became clear.

Finally, we have my Dreamswatch headband made from leftover Jaywalker socks yarn. I'd been working on this since I finished my socks but I kept getting bored and putting it down. I'd get a couple of pattern repeats done every few days but that was about as much effort as I could muster.

For those of you who are coming to the "Slap Stitch" Hockey Game on Sunday, what projects are you going to bring to work on? I'm a bit torn. I do want to keep working on my Danica scarf so that it will be done and out of the way but at the same time I want to do a project that requires very little of my attention. I guess I'll grab whatever I feel like as I head out my door.

    Goodness me, you're a veritable knitting machine! The knecklace is beautiful, and it's good to know it looks funny pre-blocking.

    And I love both headbands. I must be the only person who hasn't made a Calorimetry yet, and I have the yarn for it right here! What am I waiting for???
    Anyhow, your Dreamswatch persistence paid off. It's fabulous!
