I was able to finish the knitting on my scarf. The pattern calls for it to be blocked first and then grafted. So it goes into the blocking pile.
|Knitting is finished.|
Instead of working on the languishing sweater I just pulled out my handy, dandy cone of dishcloth yarn and started another one. They are simple, mindless knits. And make great "little something" gifts to have on hand. My version of this pattern is available here for free.
