The sock-yarn scrap linen stitch scarf (go ahead, try and say that fast even once) is growing at its customary glacial pace.
I'm not really complaining, for one thing because I'm actually quite liking watching the colours blend and meld with one another. The linen stitch breaks things up, so that a blinding fuschia/orange combo can live quite comfortably next door to screaming lime green. It's hard to see it here, but you see that bright green stripe about halfway down? The yarn right above it is the same as the yarn next to the cast-on purple edge. I kid you not.
And I'm having fun playing with dark/light contrasts, too. For example, I've concluded that it's really good to have an occasional dark stripe to add a sense of structure and order to the whole.Just for fun, I measured it today. The results:
Sigh. (Then again, I'm only looking at about six inches total, so this means I'm halfway there.)
